Thomson and First Choice set to fly two new routes out of Leeds Bradford Airport

Thomson and First Choice have announced two new routes from Leeds Bradford Airport for the summer of 2016.

The two airline companies will be increasing passenger capacity at the West Yorkshire airport by introducing additional seats and new routes to Mahon, Menorca and Paphos, Cyprus.

The new routes are set to go on sale on April 23, 2015.

As well as flying to nine Mediterranean destinations, passengers from Leeds Bradford Airport will also be able to choose varying durations – not just the standard seven and 14 night stays.

Customers travelling from the airport will also have access to some of Thomson and First Choice’s most popular flagship hotels including Sensatori Resort Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus.

Karen Switzer, director of aviation planning for Thomson and First Choice, said: “Adding more capacity from Leeds Bradford and with the introduction of new routes to Menorca and Cyprus demonstrates our commitment to the airport and the local area. Following the success of similar routes across a number of regional airports, we know that the demand is there.

“Expanding access to our portfolio of destinations and hotels is a key part of our overall strategy and we hope that this move will enhance the holiday experience for our customers.”

Tony Hallwood, the aviation development director for Leeds Bradford Airport, commented: “Leeds Bradford Airport welcomes the expansion and introduction of new routes to the island of Menorca and Paphos in Cyprus by Thomson and First Choice for summer 2016.

“With their widest ever holiday choice, holidaymakers in West and North Yorkshire can choose between a First Choice all inclusive holiday or choose from a range of popular exclusive Thomson hotels flying from locally from Leeds Bradford Airport.

“We welcome Thomson and First Choice’s increased commitment to the region and we are confident that these new Leeds Bradford routes will be a resounding success.”
