“To satisfy customers’ increasing demand for choice, flexibility and convenient local departures, Thomsonfly will be offering higher frequencies in summer 2008 on many of these destinations from local airports around the UK. Most of the UK population will be within one hour of a Thomsonfly low fares flight”, says Guy Stephenson, commercial director of Thomsonfly.

“Due to overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers this summer, we are continuing to offer the in-flight menu that has revolutionised perceptions of airline meals, personally designed by celebrity chef Aldo Zilli. These are available on all routes where a hot meal is served, at cost of £6 per meal.”

During the flight booking process customers can also pre-book meals, travel insurance, seating options allowing families to have certainty that they can sit together, baggage options and other special service requests.

Thomson also offers over 65,000 hotels which can also be booked online.
