Press Release by Cardiff Airport
Thomson and First Choice are pleased to announce that in winter 2015/16 they will be introducing a second weekly flight to Lanzarote from Cardiff Airport.
The move is part of the UK’s leading holiday company’s strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels in some of the most exciting destinations.
The additional capacity to Lanzarote is also part of being able to offer customers more flexibility, such as the opportunity to take advantage of varying durations – not just the standard seven and 14 night stays.
Customers from Cardiff will now have even easier access to some of Thomson and First Choice’s most popular flagship hotels on the island, such as Thomson Couples Hotel H10 Timanfaya Palace and Thomson Platinum Hotel Natura Palace.
Karen Switzer, Director of Aviation Planning for Thomson and First Choice, said of the move:“Lanzarote is a really popular destination for our customers almost all year round, so it is great to offer the additional capacity from Cardiff Airport. We know that flying from your local airport is really valued by our customers and is part of our strategy to enhance their overall holiday experience.”
Spencer Birns, Aviation Business Development Director at Cardiff Airport said; “We are really pleased with Thomson and First Choice’s decision to add extra capacity to Lanzarote next winter. There is big demand in Wales for the Canary Islands and now our customers are being offered more travel options to popular holiday destinations from Cardiff Airport.”
