Thomas Cook Airlines has announced new flights from Manchester to New York and Miami for the summer next year.
The airline will offer three flights a week from Manchester to New York JFK from May 2015, while the Miami service will run twice a week.
Both routes will be used to promote city breaks, fly/cruises to the Caribbean as well as further connections into the USA.
Holidays are included in the company’s new brochure, which also outlines its new premium service and an upgraded economy class on its aircraft.
The premium service allows the company’s long-haul passengers to reserve seats in advance; have priority check-in; wider seats with a 35-inch pitch and 19.7-inch width and allows bags up to 32kg.
The new economy cabin has new wider seats; an improved touch-screen in-flight entertainment system; 23kg of luggage, meals and drinks.
“As well as bringing a new and alternative approach to travelling to New York – catering for both business and leisure travellers – our new cabin interiors, premium service and upgraded economy will change the way customers view Thomas Cook Airlines, as we look to provide a great quality product at a great price,” said Christoph Debus, CEO of Thomas Cook Airlines.
“More than a million people travel from the UK to Miami each year, currently served only by London airports. With the launch of this exclusive route from Manchester, holidaymakers and cruise passengers looking for flights from the north of the UK will now have more options for travel. Both routes will also allow significant onward travel across the USA – we’re bringing travel to the states closer to the rest of Britain,” he added.
Tickets for the new flights go on sale 7 May.
