"Thomas Cook adds Cayo Santa Maria to Cuba programme..."

"Thomas Cook has launched a new long-haul resort in Cuba to its portfolio after strong demand for the country.
Holidays to Cayo Santa Maria will start next year, with flights beginning on May 5 2018.

Adding to Varadero, Holguin and Cayo Coco, the announcement means Thomas Cook is the first UK tour operator to offer holidays to all four of major Cuban tourist resorts.

Cook’s year-on-year bookings to Cuba are currently up 9% for summer 2017.
Cuba is expecting a big rise in tourism after the communist country thawed relations with the USA.

Customers will be able to choose from a range of nine all-inclusive hotels with Thomas Cook, Signature from Thomas Cook or Airtours.
The resort of Cayo Santa Maria hosts beach parties, festivals, water sports and has bars dotted along the 13km beachfront on the northern coast.
Catamaran tours around the Jardines del Rey islands are also available for holidaymakers to look for exotic fish, uninhabited mini islands and flamingos.
Sea temperatures are in the high 20s year round and air temperatures between 20C and 30C.

Thomas Cook’s leading prices for a four star resort start at £979 per person all-inclusive for seven nights flying from Manchester. Four star plus is available from £1,009 per person for seven nights."

"Saudia adds Riyadh departures to Manchester schedule"...

Saudia has announced a twice weekly service from Manchester Airport to Riyadh.
Launching on June 23rd, the service complements the current offer of five flights a week to Jeddah.

Passengers can now fly direct to Saudi Arabia seven days a week.
The flight is scheduled to depart Mondays and Fridays.

The route will operate direct to the capital on Saudia’s state of the art Dreamliner with its 24 business class seats and 274 in economy.

It will offer passengers the chance to connect onto the airline’s extensive network of Middle Eastern and Asian services.

Saudia Manager for the UK, Fikry Altowayan, said: “We are excited with this newest addition to Saudia’s growing 83 destinations.

“We renew our commitment to our passengers by providing easy access, comfort, competitive pricing and convenient travel to the capital as well as more options in flying to further destination either via Jeddah or Riyadh.
“Manchester Airport is ideally situated to serve as Saudia’s gateway to cater to our guests from the North.”

Manchester Airport is the UK’s third largest airport with more than 25.8m annual passengers.
It has more than 210 destinations served by 70 airlines.
Stephen Turner, commercial director for Manchester Airport, said: “It’s great to see Saudia increasing their presence at Manchester Airport.

“The new flights to Riyadh will offer business and leisure passengers alike direct access to the Saudi capital as well as fantastic onward connections and I’m sure they’ll prove hugely popular.”

"Manchester Airport and Thomas Cook confirm Pride sponsorship deal"

Manchester Airport and Thomas Cook Airlines are set to return as headline sponsors of Manchester Pride’s The Big Weekend.

The deal marks the sixth consecutive year for the airport as a top sponsor and the third for Thomas Cook.
For both organisations, it will be the second time they have sponsored the main stage at the *the four-day event.

In 2017, their profile will focus on the carrier’s new direct route to San Francisco, with the main stage renamed the Thomas Cook Airlines USA Stage.
Tens of thousands of visitors are forecast to arrive in the city for The Big Weekend over the August Bank Holiday, as Manchester Airport prepares to welcome hundreds of thousands of passengers in its three terminals.
Airport chief exec Ken O’Toole said: “We are pleased to jointly sponsor Manchester Pride’s The Big Weekend, alongside one of our largest airlines, as we prepare to welcome thousands of international visitors to the region over the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

“We hope the event will be a great success and wish everyone – staff taking part and members of the public – a great time.“
Thomas Cook’s chief hotels and airlines officer, Christoph Debus, commented: “Last year was such a great party and we want to go even bigger and better this year to celebrate the amazing diversity in our communities and to strengthen the connection we provide between the North West and our seven direct routes to the USA.“

Mark Fletcher, the chief executive of Manchester Pride, said: “We have true partners in Thomas Cook Airlines and Manchester Airport and couldn’t wish for more committed or supportive sponsors.

“I’m looking forward to building on the successful partnership in 2017 as we work together to promote The Big Weekend and the new *routes to the USA that Thomas Cook Airlines serve directly from Manchester Airport.“

Beijing route = Major success with newly added flights
Hong Kong = Major success with newly added flights
Singapore = Major success with upgraded aircraft

All MAN to Asia routes have done exceptionally well.
MAN is crying out for a direct Shanghai route. This is well overdue!

Think Tokyo & Seoul need to be connected in the long term also.

You are right. And you need them bedded in before end 2018 when Runway 2 opens in Dublin making direct Asian flights possible from there.

Virgin Atlantic launches Manchester-San Francisco route

"Virgin Atlantic has launched its inaugural*flight from Manchester to San Francisco, marking the first of a number of new long haul routes to the US.
Joining the San Francisco route, a summer service*between Manchester and*Boston will*launch*tomorrow, while a year-round connection to New York JFK is set to commence in May.

The San Francisco route will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing Manchester at 1120 and arriving in San Francisco at 1440 local time. The return leg leaves San Francisco at 1750, arriving at 1140 local time.

The Boston service will fly*twice weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays, departing Manchester at 1120 and arriving at 1655, with the return flight departing Boston at 1910 and arriving at 0645.

Both services will fly*on a seasonal basis between March and October, while the*New York route*will operate year-round from May. All three routes will operate in partnership*with Delta Air Lines.

As part of a trade mission between the north of England and Silicon Valley, more*than 30 tech leaders from the Northern Powerhouse – a state proposal to boost economic growth in the region*– were on board the flight to meet bosses from California’s leading universities, representatives from tech giants and members of Silicon Valley’s venture capital funding community.
The mission is being led by two serial technology investors and entrepreneurs – Scott Fletcher, founder of cloud services provider ANS Group and Dr Adam Beaumont, founder of telecoms platform business Aql – and includes a mix of Northern corporates such as Sage, Coop Digital, as well as a number of early and mid-stage tech firms including VISR-VR, Vibe Tickets, One Iota and Wakelet.

Speaking at Manchester airport, Virgin Atlantic’s chief commercial officer, Shai Weiss said:
“We want to offer our customers services to places they want to travel to and this summer, we’ll have 26 per cent more seats out of the city than last year, cementing our commitment to Manchester and the Northern Powerhouse.”"
