Glasgow Airport to launch weekly Punta Cana flights in 2011

Thompson holiday company have launched weekly flights to three new destinations from Glasgow Airport which will start next year and provide travellers with more choice when booking Croatia, Cape Verde and Punta Cana holidays. The new routes include Punta Cana flights which start from 3 May 2011 until the middle of September; Croatia flights to the Pula resort from 14 May 2011 to 29 October 2011; and flights to West African island of Cape Verde from 1 May to 30 October 2011.

The Punta Cana flights will take tourists on their Dominican Republic holidays where they can enjoy stretches of white pristine beaches, 15 designer golf courses, luxury accommodation and a topical Caribbean climate. The Punta Cana flights will join the current routes in place at Glasgow Airport which take tourists on holidays to the Dominican Republic including Puerto Plata and La Romana.

Cape Verde offers travellers beautiful white sand beaches, mountainous and volcanic terrain, picturesque towns and villages, and an abundance of wildlife with many endangered species. The milder climate allows visitors to enjoy their holidays without the soaring temperatures of other African regions.

The city of Pula in Croatia offers visitors an array of historic archaeological sites including churches and an amphitheatre, surrounded by a backdrop of beautiful mountains with a vibrant and bustling city atmosphere.

Glasgow Airport will benefit from the new Thomson routes as it battles with Edinburgh to become the busiest airport in Scotland.
Managing Director of Glasgow Airport, Amanda McMillan, said:

"The charter market remains strong at Glasgow and many holidaymakers appear to be returning to the traditional package holiday because of the value for money and the choice of destinations they serve. The addition of new flights to Cape Verde, Punta Cana and Pula is good news for holidaymakers looking for great value holidays in the sun."
