Thomson Airways unveil new 787 Dreamliner from Boeing.
Chris Browne, Managing Director of Thomson Airways, comments: “As the UK’s third largest airline, it is a major coup for us to become the first UK airline to take delivery of the 787 Dreamliner. Starting to fly the Dreamliner in our summer 2013 flying programme is a key step in our journey to modernise the holiday experience we provide for our customers. Our holidays are expertly designed to suit each customer, and everything from selecting exclusive properties that are only available to Thomson customers, to the in-flight experience has been taken into consideration to ensure customers experience a dream holiday.”
Thomson Airways will operate the Dreamliner from four regional airports from 1st May 2013 – Manchester, London Gatwick, Glasgow and East Midlands, giving holiday makers across the UK the chance to experience the health and well-being benefits the aircraft has to offer.

Some of the places on the shortlist for the 787 Dreamliner include Thailand, The West Coast of Mexico and South Africa
