Thomson Receives UK’s First 787

Thomson Airways has taken delivery of its first 787. The aircraft, which touched down at Manchester Airport today (May 31), is the UK’s first 787. The airline will receive a further three 787 aircraft this summer. Thomson Airways will fly the aircraft from London Gatwick, Manchester, East Midlands and Glasgow airports, on long-haul routes to Sanford, Florida and Cancun in Mexico from July 8, 2013. “The extended flying range of the Dreamliner also unlocks a host of new and exciting holiday options for our customers, increasing the range of long-haul destinations available with Thomson Airways, from four UK airports this summer,” Chris Browne, Thomson Airways’ MD commented. “This winter we’ll fly the Dreamliner direct to Phuket in Thailand and from summer 2014 we will be introducing holidays to Mauritius and Puerto Vallarta, flying direct on our new 787 aircraft.”
