Following the recent launch of the Thomas Cook Group’s unification of its brands and one common symbol, the ‘Sunny Heart’, Thomas Cook Airlines UK is marking the start of the final assembly at Airbus’ Hamburg base of the airline’s first new Airbus A321-211 aircraft to enter its UK fleet, featuring the new ‘Sunny Heart’ livery.
Six aircraft will be deployed in the UK and will be in operation by summer next year.
Christoph Debus, the carrier's CEO, said, “This marks the beginning of an exciting phase for our UK airline as we look ahead to our first new aircraft this December. It’s very symbolic that we will see the first of our new Airbus A321 aircraft in the UK take on our new livery, an icon for the new Thomas Cook.
“The aircraft is now in the final assembly stage and we plan to take delivery in early December – with the first commercial flights taking place before Christmas.
"Our new ’Sunny Heart’ livery expresses the philosophy of our airline; our team putting their heart into every flight and making sure our customers’ holiday starts as soon as they board their flight to their holiday destination. The Sunny Heart is the perfect symbol for our passion to create memorable holidays for our guests."
