New flights from Bristol Airport for 2018

By Ellie Pipe, Friday Mar 31, 2017

Summers filled with festivals, foraging and alfresco fun await on home soil – but those desperate for sunnier climes will be cheered to hear there is also a bunch of new flight destinations available soon from Bristol Airport.

Thomas Cook has announced a raft of additional routes for 2018 – including Spain’s Costa Brava and Preveza in Greece – in anticipation of the revival of the traditional package holiday.

The ‘classic’ Costa Brava was first offered by the company in 1949, when customers travelled by steamer and rail, and died out in 2009. But Thomas Cook is ready to roll it out once more next year, with one flight per week from Bristol.

OK, so this is obviously far into the future for last-minute sun-seekers, but forward-planning holiday-makers can begin perusing the latest line in holiday destinations, from Gerona to Kos, Hurgharda in Egypt, to Bulgaria’s Bourgas.

Shaun Browne, the airport’s head of aviation relations, said new flights to Hurghada and Preveza are particularly welcome as the routes have been high on passengers’ wish-lists from Bristol Airport.

Chris Mottershead, managing director of Thomas Cook UK, said: “Our new destinations for summer 2018 from Bristol offer a good mix of holiday types. We’re expecting a revitalisation in the traditional package holiday destination of Costa Brava and we’ve worked hard to secure some of the best quality hotels for our customers.”
