Fly Thomas Cook - Backed by the most famous name in travel
Part of one of the most recognisable names in the travel business, Fly Thomas Cook is the independent flight only operation of Thomas Cook Airways which established as a separate brand in 2005. It is one of the largest holiday charter airlines in the UK and a division of the vast Thomas Cook group which incorporates everything from tour operations, retail travel shops and currency exchange. Starting life in its present form as JMC Airlines in 2000, the company was re-branded in 2003 to become Thomas Cook Airways and further expansion has recently followed with a 2007 merger with MyTravel Airways. The airline is used as the carrier for the parent company's tour operations and a sizeable proportion of revenue comes from online seat only sales through the Fly Thomas Cook website.
Where they fly to
Headquartered at Manchester International Airport, Fly Thomas Cook also operates departures from London Gatwick, London Stansted, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, East Midlands, Glasgow, and Newcastle. Using 6 Airbus A320-200 and 18 Boeing 757 aircraft, it serves over 100 Mediterranean and long haul destinations such as Lanzarote, Banjul, Santorini, Almeria and Orlando. Along with tour operator Canadian Affair, the airline also operates services to Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal and Ottawa from Birmingham, London Gatwick, Manchester, and Glasgow.
