Long haul flights

Thomson Airways has rolled out some exciting changes to give you the best possible travel experience. Here’s what you can look forward to…

Before You Fly

We offer direct long haul flights from 7 UK airports – more than any other UK airline. What’s more, we’re committed to making your time at the airport even easier. For starters, you’ve got the option of using our Select Your Seat service. It means you can choose your seat numbers in advance, and sit together on the plane.

We’re also planning the introduction of online check-in. When online check-in is introduced, on selected routes, you’ll be able to check in for your flight and print your outbound and inbound boarding cards at home. So, at the airport, you can simply drop off your bags and head through to the departure lounge.
