Manchester Airport baked this fantastic Seattle and airline-inspired cake to celebrate Thomas Cook Airlines’ inaugural service to Seattle-Tacoma. This becomes the airline’s fourth destination in the Western US from Manchester after Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Seattle flights will operate twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays).
- Thomas Cook Airlines introduced Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) to its map on 27 May, launching twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) flights from Manchester (MAN). Paul Hutchings, MD of Operations, Thomas Cook Airlines, commented on the new Seattle service by saying: “As well as being a fantastic destination in its own right, we have seen 43% of bookings for Seattle have a feeder destination at either end with one of our partner airlines, with the most popular including Portland, Salt Lake City and Honolulu. Our number of feeder destinations has grown by 30% over the last two years. This highlights that our growing number of interline agreements enable our customers to explore the world when flying with us from Manchester Airport.” No other airline presently operates on the 7,459-kilometre link between Manchester and Seattle. Along with its newest transatlantic service, Thomas Cook has also introduced four European services to its network, including a new destination – Varna (VAR) in Bulgaria. Its four routes from the UK to destinations in Bulgaria and Turkey will all see a weekly rotation, with two being routes presently not flown by other carriers.
