Thomson and First Choice holidaymakers from across the region are set to benefit from an additional flight to Lanzarote this winter from Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield.
The twice weekly service starts in October on Sundays and Thursdays to Lanzarote’s only airport and offers holidaymakers the chance to visit unique and exclusive hotels such as the Thomson Couples H10 Timanfaya Palace hotel.
The additional flight has been introduced at the airport to give passengers greater flexibility and choice when booking their winter sun breaks and is a result of the continuing partnerships between TUI UK & Ireland and the airport.
Steve Gill, Managing Director at Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: “We are delighted that Thomson and First Choice are introducing the new Arrecife flight. It will be fantastic for passengers who are looking for a winter sun break as they will benefit from additional flights to Lanzarote, amongst other fantastic destinations all available from the airport. The increased frequency will allow passengers to take advantage of seven, 10, 11 and 14 night holidays to the popular holiday location. With the school summer holidays now over people have started to think about booking their winter break so this is an ideal time for Thomson and First Choice to be introducing the additional service. The convenience of leaving from South Yorkshire combined with great value holidays is another worthwhile reason to fly local.”
Paul Cooper, Airport Negotiations Manager for Thomson and First Choice, said: “Adding this flight from Robin Hood Airport demonstrates our commitment to the Yorkshire area and follows the success of similar routes across a number of regional airports. Expanding access to our portfolio of destinations and hotels from regional airports is a key part of our overall strategy and we hope that this move will enhance the holiday experience for our customers.”
Alongside Arrecife, Thomson and First Choice will be offering other winter destinations for 2013/14 from Doncaster Sheffield Airport to a selection of resorts including Alicante, Malaga, and Tenerife.
