“Expanding access to our portfolio of destinations and hotels is a key part of our overall strategy and we hope that this move will enhance the holiday experience for our customers.”

Carol Benzie, Managing Director of Aberdeen International Airport, said: “We are delighted that Thomson and First Choice have chosen to add capacity for one of our most popular leisure destinations in 2016. Continuing to grow our leisure portfolio is a key strategic priority for us and the additional capacity is great news for passengers wishing to travel directly from their local airport.”
