Thomas Cook To Build Its Stansted Operations

Thomas Cook Airlines is to operate two aircraft from London Stansted Airport from June next year, allowing the airline to increase its frequencies. The carrier will also replace its Stansted-based A320 with the larger A321. The move will allow the airline to increase the number of flights operated on its existing routes, such as Corfu, Fuerteventura, Heraklion, Izmir, Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes and Skiathos. Rob Thompson, Thomas Cook Airline’s director of planning, said: “Our growing partnership with London Stansted is great news for those holidaymakers in the East and South East of England looking for an airline and airport closer to home to help them travel to more destinations… We believe that this area of the country is currently underserved with respect of airport departures.” As from June 2014, Thomas Cook will serve 18 destinations from Stansted, transporting over 150,000 passengers each year.
