Thomas Cook summer 2019 schedule released.

British holiday airline Thomas Cook Airlines released its full summer 2019 long haul programme a little earlier this week.  The new season includes some new destinations and increased schedules to others.  

The airline will fly from Manchester, London Gatwick and Glasgow to 13 destinations in the USA, the Caribbean and Mexico. The carrier will also strengthen its long-haul fleet with another Airbus A330-200.

The A330-200 will have fully refurbished premium and economy cabins, seatback in-flight entertainment and USB charging points and it is to be based at Manchester for the season.  Thomas Cook Group Airline has a fleet that includes seven A330-200s.

Seattle, which launched in May this year, will increase from two flights a week to three (the same frequency as San Francisco), Cancun will fly daily (same as New York) and 13 flights a week will go to Orlando at peak season, a growth of 21 per cent compared to summer 18. Montego Bay is a brand new long-haul destination.

Henry Sunley, Commercial Director at Thomas Cook Airlines says: “In the past two years we have increased flights to destinations such as San Francisco, so we are pleased to grow Seattle following its inaugural flight earlier this year, and Orlando which we know is really popular with our customers. We have a fantastic summer season of long-haul flights ahead."
