New Falcon/Thomson Costa Daurada Flight from Ireland West

New Falcon/Thomson Costa Daurada Flight from Ireland West

Tour operators Falcon/Thomson, part of the TUI Group, have launched the inaugural flight on a new Costa Daurada service direct from Ireland West Airport Knock.

With a weekly flight every Tuesday until 16th August, holidaymakers throughout the West of Ireland have the opportunity to discover the ‘Golden Coast’ from their local airport. Costa Daurada is home to the popular resorts of Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils, while also on the doorstep of Barcelona.

Charlotte Brenner, Marketing Manager for Falcon and Thomson, said: “We are delighted to welcome the first passengers on our inaugural service to Costa Daurada from Ireland West Airport. We are delighted to see a full flight of passengers from across the West and North West regions departing on the first flight and believe Costa Daurada, serviced through Reus Airport, will prove a very popular choice for local holidaymakers. Over the last number of years Costa Daurada, including the resorts of Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils, has become a firm favourite from Ireland due to its short flight time, excellent range of quality hotels and apartments, and attractions for all the family.”

Donal Healy, Head of Marketing & Route Development, Ireland West Airport Knock, said: “We are delighted to welcome the first flight to Costa Daurada with Falcon and Thomson. It is great to see a packed flight for the inaugural service and bookings have been very strong for the programme for the rest of the summer – so much so that the programme is already on sale for summer 2017.”

Set along the beautiful Costa Daurada, or the ‘Golden Coast’ as it is commonly known, the three main resorts of Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils offer an excellent choice for families, couples and adults alike. From the bustling Salou with its palm-lined prom running along a beautiful sandy beach to the more traditional fishing village of Cambrils, while La Pineda boasts its own golden beach, water park and low key nightlife.

All resorts are on the doorstep of the famous theme park PortAventura, where children of all ages can enjoy roller coaster rides and some wild water adventures at the Caribbean-themed PortAventura Aquatic Park. Alternatively a day trip to Barcelona, which is located only 90 minutes away, will satisfy the culture vulture with quirky art and architecture and football fans with Nou Camp.
