Thomas Cook increases capacity on flights to Turkey

UK Leisure airline Thomas Cook (MT/TCX) has increased capacity on flights to Turkey from Cardiff Airport.

The increase comes partly from the return of Antalya as a destination from the Wales’ national airport as well as a 2nd weekly Dalaman rotation.

Thanks to low prices Turkey was the third most popular destination for British tourists in 2017 appealing to holidaymakers on a budget.

Thomas Cook’s UK Managing Director Chris Mottershead, said: “Whether you’re traveling as a family, couple or with friends, Turkey offers something for everyone and has returned to popularity this summer with package holiday bookings up 10% among Brits.
