Thomson Airways offers new routes from Doncaster Sheffield this winter

1st November 2010

Thomson Airways, the airline for Thomson and First Choice, launches its winter 2010/2011 schedule in November and has added Lanzarote to its offering from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

Lanzarote is a great location for a relaxing holiday spent on its golden sands. However it’s not all about the beaches, Lanzarote is formed of a unique volcanic landscape of peaks, solidified lava streams and bizarre rock formations, great for those wishing to explore.

Nick Smillie, Aviation Sales Director from Robin Hood Airport said: “We are delighted that Thomson are adding to the destinations they serve from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

“They really do recognise that people going on holiday want to travel from their local airport.

“This additional route has been added thanks to great customer support and demand.”

As the UK’s biggest leisure airline, Thomson Airways offers fantastic customer service, ensuring your holiday can begin as soon as you depart the UK. To help you relax, all our seats are allocated at check-in, meaning there is no scrum to board the aircraft, and for long haul flights we offer more legroom in economy than BA, Virgin Atlantic, bmi and Monarch.

Carl Gissing, Director of Customer Services for Thomson Airways said: “At Thomson Airways we are fully committed to our regional UK airports as we understand the importance of allowing our customers greater choice and flexibility. With over 30 new routes being introduced, those looking to escape for some winter sun this year will have more choice then ever before without the inconvenience of a long journey to the airport”.

First Choice offers seven night holidays in Lanzarote, staying at the 4 Sun Holiday Village Flamingo Beach, from £399 per person, based on two adults sharing on an all inclusive basis, departing from Doncaster Sheffield on 5 December 2010.
