Created: 31st Mar 2016
Thomas Cook Airlines and P&O Cruises have announced a new partnership that provides Malta cruise opportunities for holiday makers flying from Bristol on new Airbus A321s.
Supported by the recently announced new weekly flights from Bristol Airport to Malta starting in 2017, the partnership supports the new P&O Cruises Malta programme to the Mediterranean.
As well as destination breaks for Thomas Cook Airlines customers purchasing only seats, P&O Cruises customers will also be offering Thomas Cook Airlines flights when booking for luxury cruises departing from Malta next year.
P&O Cruises vice president of sales, Alex White said: “We have a range of new and exciting Mediterranean fly-cruise itineraries departing from Malta and visiting a number Western, Eastern and Central Mediterranean ports - Malta is our 2017 cruising hotspot. Our fly-cruise programme is popular with guests wishing to enjoy the convenience of flying to a destination to board a ship but also wanting to discover a variety of new and interesting ports in one holiday.”
Thomas Cook Airlines’ director of sales and planning, Henry Sunley, said: “P&O Cruises from Malta will offer a fantastic new opportunity for South West guests. It’s a really great departure point for exploring the Mediterranean and in luxurious style. Flying out on our A321s with refurbished cabins will be a great start and end to their holiday.”
Shaun Browne, Bristol Airport’s Aviation Director said: “We are delighted to see the relationship between Thomas Cook Airlines and P&O Cruises. This will provide customers from the South Wales and South West region a new and exciting fly-cruise programme for 2017. We are sure the cruise flights will be well received and offer customers a wider choice of fly-cruise holidays using their local airport.”
