homas Cook Airlines is adding more than 29,000 extra seats on flights from Cardiff this summer, a 22% rise in capacity across its 11 routes.
The growth comes after the airline’s decision to introduce a larger Airbus A321 to its services from the airport.
Spencer Birns, commercial director at Cardiff Airport, said: “Thomas Cook Airlines is one of a number of airlines that have shown confidence in Cardiff Airport over the past couple of years and recognising its potential, by adding more capacity and, in turn, stimulating choice for our customers.”
For the first time since 2012, Thomas Cook Airlines will operate seven destinations from April – Arrecife, Tenerife, Antalya, Dalaman, Larnaca, Majorca and Enfidha in Tunisia.
Flights to Rhodes, Zakynthos, Ibiza and Reus, Spain, will start in May.
