Long haul flights

There’s never been a better time to fly long haul with Thomson Airways. We’re committed to making your journey as comfortable and hassle-free as possible. Here's how...

Before You Fly

We offer direct non-stop long-haul flights from seven UK airports – more than any other UK airline. And we’re making your time at the airport even easier. For starters, you can use online check-in for your outbound and return flights in one go. You’ve also 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.

In the air

In The Air

We’ve been working hard to improve our onboard offerings. Our food and drink menus have had an overhaul, plus we’ve teamed up with Starbucks to bring you top-quality coffee and snacks. Our Inflight entertainment now features on-demand movies and TV as standard, too.

The Dreamliner experience

From summer 2015, Thomson Airways will fly direct to all long-haul destinations on the 787 Dreamliner, a state-of-the-art jet that’s changing the future of flying. But you don’t have to take our word for it – last year, 94 per cent of passengers rated their experience on the Dreamliner as good or excellent.
