Thomas Cook Airlines UK has announced the schedule for its partnership with Flybe, providing connecting flights from a network of regional airports across the UK to the Caribbean, Florida, Las Vegas, Mexico and Goa via Manchester Airport, which include the only routes outside London to Antigua and St Lucia, and one of only a handful of flights from the UK to Barbados.
Holidaymakers can now catch a morning flight to Manchester followed by a flight to their long-haul holiday destination – and be relaxing by the pool or bar later the same day.
The company's head of air travel Christoph Debus said: “It’s fantastic news that we’re able to offer holidaymakers from across the UK flights and holidays via Manchester to some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and popular resorts in the US, Mexico and Goa.
“As we develop Manchester Airport as our UK hub – working in partnership with Flybe - we’re pleased to be able to offer more flexibility and choice for our customers, competing with the very best scheduled and charter carriers with a range of connections ensuring they don’t have to rely on London’s airports.”
Flight-only prices start at £499 return to Cancun, £549 for the Caribbean and £549 to Goa, including connecting flights.
