The new Thomas Cook Airlines service will see Airbus A321s flying between Bristol and Malta, with seat only flights available for cruise passengers, as well as between Birmingham and Malta.
The new Bristol service, which starts next year, will operate once a week on a Thursday, from 6th April until 19th October.
A sister service will also operate from Birmingham Airport, again flying each Thursday, next year, starting slightly later in the season, from 4th May to 19th October.
Speaking about the new service, P&O Cruises Vice President of Sales, Alex White, said, “We have a range of new and exciting Mediterranean fly-cruise itineraries departing from Malta and visiting a number Western, Eastern and Central Mediterranean ports – Malta is our 2017 cruising hotspot. Our fly-cruise programme is popular with guests wishing to enjoy the convenience of flying to a destination to board a ship but also wanting to discover a variety of new and interesting ports in one holiday.”
Whilst Thomas Cook Airlines’ Director of Sales and Planning, Henry Sunley, said, “P&O Cruises from Malta will offer a fantastic new opportunity for Midlands and South West guests. It’s a really great departure point for exploring the Mediterranean and in luxurious style. Flying out on our A321s with refurbished cabins will be a great start and end to their holiday.”
