Thomas Cook Airlines’ inaugural flight from Manchester to Tobago started on 13 November, marked by this beach-inspired cake, with departures every Sunday running until 19 March 2017.
- Thomas Cook Airlines’ inaugural Tobago (TAB) flight started on 13 November, reinforcing its 17-route-strong long-haul portfolio, which already makes it the largest carrier to the US from Manchester (MAN). The weekly departure will run every Sunday until 19 March 2017, and is flown by the leisure carrier’s 314-seat A330-200 fleet. Stephen Turner, Commercial Director at Manchester Airport, said: “It’s great to see Thomas Cook Airlines starting another long-haul route from Manchester. We’re confident it will prove hugely popular with the 22 million people in our catchment area.” While no other carrier operates this route, Thomas Cook’s sister airline Condor, also started a new route from Munich to Tobago (and Barbados) over the same weekend.
