First Choice and Thomson Newcastle Programme 2014

Tour operators Thomson and First Choice have announced increased capacity from Newcastle, creating an extra 20,000 holidays for North East travellers next year.

The firms will offer new, 10 and 11 night durations to Costa Del Sol, Kefalonia and Rhodes, which will increase the number of weekly flights.

The company has created this programme from Newcastle International Airport, following the success of similar routes across a number of other regional airports. The demand demand is increasingly for hlidaymakers to avoid the larged hub airports and associated costs, even if the price of the holiday is slighlty higher on paper.

The announcement follows news that Thomson Airways will also operate the Thomson 787 Dreamliner to Cancun and Orlando from Newcastle airport, from July 21 2014.

Thomson and First Choice will be the first UK operator to fly customers on the Dreamliner from their local airport.
