Thomson Airways, the airline for Thomson and First Choice was today named ‘World’s Best Leisure Airline’ at the World Airline Awards, held at Musee de l’Air et de l’Espace at the Paris Airshow.
This is the fifth year out of six that the airline, which takes more than five million customers on holiday every year, has won this category.
John Murphy, Managing Director, Thomson Airways said: “We are extremely proud to have won the World’s Best Leisure Airline again. We’re always looking at new ways to innovate our on board experience and revolutionise our fleet, from introducing iPads to personalise our service and taking delivery of further Thomson 787 Dreamliners. We also remain committed to ensuring customers can fly from the airport closest to their doorstep to a great selection of destinations, so have focused on offering more long haul routes on our Dreamliner from regional airports.”
Thomson Airways is determined to retain the “World’s Best Leisure Airline” title in the future. It has recently unveiled a move to expand its Dreamliner fleet with up to four new, larger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, increasing the Thomson Airways fleet to 13 Dreamliners. The first 787-9 aircraft will arrive in June 2016.
Last year, the airline unveiled its five year vision to change the face of holiday flying through new state-of-the-art aircraft, more long-haul destinations and innovative on-board product and service concepts including trialling innovative family booths and duo-seating. This includes delivery of 47 new Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts by 2020.
The award was collected by Chris Browne, Chief Operating Officer for TUI Aviation and Chris Birt, Head of Cabin Service Delivery for Thomson Airways.
