More choice for Welsh sun seekers flying to Malaga next summer
Thomson and First Choice are pleased to announce that in Summer 2013 they will be doubling the amount of seats available on their Cardiff to Malaga routes by adding an extra flight. This means that holidaymakers will have far more flexibility on a route that already serves a very popular destination.
The move to introduce an extra flight is part of the UK’s largest tour operator’s strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels in some of the most exciting destinations. In addition, customers can now choose 10 and 11 night durations in addition to the seven and 14 night’s already on sale for Summer 2013.
Customers flying from Cardiff will now have access to some of Thomson and First Choice’s most highly scoring flagship hotels including; First Choice’s Holiday Village Costa del Sol which is perfect for families and Thomson’s Polynesia resort, an all-inclusive themed hotel which is perfect for both couples and families looking for a stylish escape.
Paul Cooper, Airport Negotiations Manager for Thomson and First Choice, explains:
“Increasing our Malaga capacity by 100% demonstrates our continued commitment to the Cardiff, and South Wales region and we are confident Malaga and the Costa Del Sol will continue to prove popular with our customers looking for some summer sunshine with short flight times and flying from their local airport.”
Spencer Birns, Cardiff Airport's Head of Commercial Operations and Air Services Development added:
"We're extremely pleased that Thomson, our biggest carrier, has decided to enhance its programme from Cardiff by adding more flights to Malaga.”
Malaga is an extremely popular destination from South Wales, and we're often asked by passengers eager to visit the Spanish resort about additional frequencies, therefore Thomson's announcement to increase its Summer 13 programme is great news for the airport and travellers in the South Wales region."
