The Port of Seattle welcomes the announcement that Thomas Cook Airline, part of the Thomas Cook Group will begin new seasonal service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Manchester beginning May 27, 2018. The twice-weekly (Thursday and Sunday) nonstop flight will be on an Airbus A330 airplane. Manchester is one of the UK’s most-visited cities, behind London and Edinburgh.
“With our new connection to Manchester and the Condor year-round service from Seattle, it’s never been easier and more affordable for Americans to explore Europe. With seventeen gateways in the U.S., four of which just launched this summer, we’re making excellent progress with our strategy to grow our long-haul network,” said Christoph Debus, chief airlines officer, Thomas Cook Group.
With prices from $549.99 return, Thomas Cook Airline is a smart choice for customers, who want to explore Europe and North England. All tickets include free checked baggage (up to 50 pounds) as well as meals.
The Thomas Cook Airline Manchester service adds to sister airline Condor’s service expansion from Sea-Tac, which extended existing Frankfurt service to year-round flights along with a seasonal Munich flight. Sea-Tac has become Condor’s largest U.S. gateway along with Las Vegas. Earlier this year, Condor became a mileage partner with Alaska Airlines, allowing passengers to earn and redeem with Alaska’s Mileage Plan.
