Thomas Cook Airlines announces it is adding year-round, three-times weekly service to Manchester from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) beginning December 14th. This is in addition to Thomas Cook Airlines' daily JFK flights to Manchester in the summer. This extension of flights makes New York the third year-round U.S. destination for Europe’s 7th largest long-haul airline. The company’s Condor brand currently provides year-round flights from Las Vegas and Seattle to Frankfurt. To introduce New Yorkers to the new Thomas Cook Airlines’ Manchester year-round service, the airline is offering an introductory, one-way fare of $99 on select Manchester departures this coming winter. The new, year-round service represents the airline’s strategy to expand its successful long-haul offering and become the preferred carrier from North America to Europe.
The additional direct flights to Manchester from JFK will operate on Airbus A330 equipment. All tickets include free checked baggage (up to 50 pounds) as well as meals and inflight entertainment, available on seat-back screens with a choice of free and paid-for premium content, featuring more than 30 movies and 50 TV shows.
“With our new added year-round service, it’s never been easier and more affordable for Americans to explore Europe. With seventeen gateways in the U.S., four of which just launched this summer, we’re making excellent progress with our strategy to grow our long-haul network,” said Christoph Debus, chief airlines officer, Thomas Cook Group.
Passenger numbers for the award-winning airline from North America to Europe have more than doubled during the past three years. Thomas Cook Group Airlines currently serves the U.S. from Anchorage, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Fairbanks, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Portland, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.
“With three additional flights per week, we are closing the gap from Christmas until mid-March, and we are offering our customers a great opportunity to visit Europe during the winter months. We work closely with partner airlines to connect travelers from more than 30 destinations within the U.S. to many fantastic European cities. This provides travelers with a wide array of winter vacation options from ski trips to the Alps to ringing in the New Year in Paris,” said Debus.
