This afternoon saw passengers depart on holidays to Majorca with Thomson and First Choice for the first time in seven years following the first departure of Thomson Airways’ summer 2016 weekly flight to Palma from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Local Thomson travel agents helped to put passengers in the holiday mood by being on hand to welcome them to the start of their holiday at airport check in handing out a variety of giveaways including free children’s meal vouchers for use in the Airport’s Frankie and Benny’s restaurant in the departure lounge. The fun continued with a special airport celebratory cake and ribbon cutting ceremony ahead of the first passenger boarding the aircraft.

It was just over a year ago that Thomson and First Choice announced that they would be offering the region’s holidaymakers the opportunity to travel on holiday with them to Majorca for Summer 2016 from Liverpool for the first time since 2008. Over the past 12 months, bookings from Liverpool have sold so well, that the tour operator announced last month that it will be expanding its Liverpool programme for summer 2017, by adding a further weekly departure to Palma, in addition to new weekly services to Ibiza and Tenerife. Flights for summer 2017 are on sale now.

Mark Povall, Director of Air Service Development for LJLA commented, “Today marks the start of what we believe will be a long and successful partnership with Thomson and First Choice and it is great to see a Thomson Airways aircraft back operating from Liverpool once again.

There is huge demand for charter holidays from across the Liverpool City Region and we are delighted to welcome local holidaymakers as they start their Thomson or First Choice holiday with the added convenience of flying from their local airport.”
