New Thomas Cook Partnership with easyJet from Belfast International

Thomas Cook UK has confirmed that it will be taking an allocation of seats on easyJet flights to package with its own holidays for summer 2013. The programme includes new routes from Belfast International, Bristol, Edinburgh, Southend, Stansted and Luton. Thomas CookRob Thompson, who is in charge of flight planning and capacity for Thomas Cook UK & Ireland’s mainstream holidays, said: “Combining the best and most experienced name in travel with one of Europe’s leading airlines means holidaymakers will have more choice while continuing to offer excellent value for money.

“While we have been using third-party airlines for many years, we are the first to work with a leading low-cost carrier on this scale. In providing us with new routes, flying days and durations, the partnership is an exciting development for the industry – taking the package holiday to new heights.”

Thomas Cook’s easyJet seat allocations will only be sold as part of a package holiday and all will be fully ATOL protected like all of Thomas Cook’s other packages. Thomas Cook will not sell easyJet as flight only.

As before, Thomas Cook will continue to use a mix of in-house and third-party flying, including Monarch and Thomson, in order to deliver its large summer holiday programme.
