Thomas Cook Group Airlines grows capacity

Thomas Cook Group Airlines will increase its capacity for Summer 2018 by 10 per cent, following the acquisition of Air Berlin assets and the launch of its new Palma-based airline, Thomas Cook Airlines Balearics.

The new platforms for growth will also support the addition of 10 aircraft to the airline’s operations, consistent with its plans to grow capacity to meet increased customer demand in its key markets of Germany and the UK.

A significant proportion of the capacity growth will come from an increase in short and medium haul flights in Thomas Cook’s German airline, Condor.
