Thomson and First Choice are offering to direct flight from London to Phuket from November 2013.
According to a media release, Thomson and First Choice will let customers be able to fly direct to Phuket on the 787 Dreamliner.
Thomson and First Choice are also giving their customers the chance to explore Thailand further and travel the length and breadth of the country with a ‘twin centre’ offering where, for example, holidaymakers can either stay for three nights in Bangkok combined with an 11 night stay in Krabi, Khao Lak or Phuket. If Bangkok is a little lively, Thomson and First Choice will be offering a number of pure beach ‘twin centre’ holidays so customers can opt to connect from Phuket for a seven night stay in Koh Samui followed by seven nights in Krabi, Khao Lak or Phuket. Other options include seven nights in Khao Lak and seven nights in the travellers’ retreat of Krabi, for those who want a more ‘rest and relaxation’ focussed break.
"We are thrilled that we are able to offer an exclusive, direct flight to Phuket on the Thomson 787 Dreamliner and we are confident that our customers will love the destination and the hotels we will be operating to”, according to Shona Swain, General Manager of Long Haul Product for Thomson and First Choice.
"Choosing Thailand as a destination was an obvious choice; it is extremely popular with tourists and tops the bill for independent travellers, with its perfect mix of modern hotels, white sandy beaches that stretch for miles and authentic Thai cuisine, temples and markets – it has a unique appeal to couples, groups and families alike."
