Southampton Airport to add new route to Ibiza
Thomson and First Choice have announced increased capacity at Southampton Airport for their summer 2017 flying programme, including a new route to Ibiza.
The new service, which launches on 26 May 2017, will provide greater holiday flexibility to holidaymakers flying from the airport.
The move to introduce new routes is part of the holiday companies’ strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport, and have been launched in tandem with new summer 2017 holidays.
Karen Switzer, director of Aviation Planning for Thomson and First Choice, said: “Adding more capacity from Southampton airport with the introduction of the new route to Ibiza demonstrates our commitment to the airport and the local area.
“Expanding access to our portfolio of destinations and hotels is a key part of our overall strategy and will enhance the holiday experience for our customers.”
Dave Lees, managing director of Southampton Airport, said: “It’s fantastic to announce our first new route for summer 2017 as our priority is to offer passengers a variety of choice for their summer holidays. We hope to see even more people flying out of their local airport for their summer holidays next year.”
