Sunday 26th of July 2015
This month, London Stansted Airport launched its first transatlantic flights to three new destinations. The flights, operated by Thomas Cook Airlines, will carry passengers from the London airport to Orlando, Cancun and Las Vegas.
As a way of celebrating the airline’s inaugural flight to Orlando, the airport buildings were decorated with balloons and there was a whole host of Disney themed entertainment throughout the terminal buildings. There was an extravagant, three-tiered celebration cake, children’s gift bags crammed with goodies and Disney singers placed throughout the airport, to bring a little bit of Orlando sparkle to Stansted Airport.
The flights from London Stansted Airport to Orlando will operate on Fridays and Sundays throughout July and August 2015, with extra flights being added during summer 2016. Passengers wishing to travel from Stansted to Cancun can do so on Saturdays throughout the summer months; and if its a trip to the bright lights of Las Vegas, outbound flights will be operating on Mondays.
Andrew Harrison, Stansted Airport’s managing director, commented on the inaugural celebrations: “We are delighted to welcome the return of long-haul services to Stansted.These flights to Orlando, Las Vegas and Cancun will be a fantastic addition to our destinations board and the first of what will be a growing long-haul offer from Stansted in the coming years – providing people in our catchment with greater choice and value. We look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with Thomas Cook, and wish them every success with these new and exciting routes.”
