Thomas Cook Airlines Flights

A British charter airline based in Manchester in the United Kingdom, Thomas Cook Airlines is a part of top travel group Thomas Cook Group, which started when a man named Thomas Cook was one day struck with the idea of furthering social reform through travel on his walk home. He started arranging trips and tours within England for the local crowd – which were extremely well-received – and eventually expanded these tours into Europe. Although he passed away in the 1890s, his firm was continued by his nephews, becoming Thomas Cook and Son Ltd. Many mergers and acquisitions later, Thomas Cook emerged as Thomas Cook Group plc and is today one of the top leisure travel groups in the world, dealing with everything travel-related from flights to hotels, travel insurance, car rentals as well as package holidays. A flight with Thomas Cook Airlines promises the ultimate idyllic entrance into the holiday experience.

Why fly with Thomas Cook Airlines

Check in

Passengers flying with Thomas Cook Airlines to certain destinations can check in online 48 hours before the scheduled departure of their flight, to skip the process at the airport. If you’ve checked in online, simply drop your luggage off at dedicated bag drops upon arrival at the airport and head straight for the boarding gate. Passengers opting to check in the conventional way should do so 3 hours before long-haul flights and 2 hours before normal flights. Please refer to the Thomas Cook Airlines website to find out if online check-in is available for your flight. Believing that passenger choice is most important, a Thomas Cook Airlines flight experience can be customised according to passengers’ needs. Travel extras such as baggage allowance, in-flight meals, seat assignment etc. can all be added to a booking if passengers so require, or excluded for a frills-free budget travel experience.


For dining in the sky, Thomas Cook offers only the best. Forget bland, tasteless in-flight meals with boring options like fish or chicken – Thomas Cook’s in-flight menu is created by celebrity chef James Martin. With tasty options like roast beef and treacle sponge in their low-cost three-course meal, taste buds have never been so satiated on a flight.

Inflight Service

After eating, sit back and relax with the in-flight entertainment system offering the latest movies, music and television shows to you right at your seat. Feel like stretching your legs? Extra leg-room seats can be booked for only a small fee. For the hidden shopaholic in you, the in-flight shopping emporium offers branded goods from watches to jewellery, perfumes to cosmetics, at prices comparable to the shops on the ground. Your shopping experience can begin even before you’ve arrived at your destination.

Baggage Allowance

All passengers are given a complimentary hand baggage allowance of 5kg, while check-in baggage allowance varies according to the flight and destination. However, passengers are also given the option of booking extra baggage space at discounted airport rates any time before their flight, as well as combining their baggage allowance together with their travel companion’s allowance for more packing flexibility. Special booking options are also available for sports baggage, wedding baggage and children’s baggage. Please refer to the Thomas Cook Airline website for more details.
