Thomas Cook Airlines ‘Sunny Heart’ A321 leads customer feedback and on time performance

Fantastic offers to fly on-board in Summer 14

Since its arrival at Belfast International Airport in December last year, the new Thomas Cook Airlines @FlyTC
UK Airbus A321 (G-TCDC) has continued to take holidaymakers to destinations across Europe and has become one of the best performing aircraft in the Thomas Cook fleet.

Named ‘Sunny Heart’, the aircraft is much loved by customers – with 75% rating the new Recaro- designed seat comfort as good or excellent, and 85% giving a similar view on the overall cabin experience.

Rob Thompson, Thomas Cook Airline’s Director of Planning, said, “Our new aircraft has been well received by our customers and it’s great to see that it’s continuing to take them on holiday with an exceptional on time performance. We’re looking forward to a great summer season at Belfast as more and more holidaymakers experience our new fleet.”

As well as great feedback from customers on the quality of the cabin, the aircraft has operated with very few delays, and its industry-standard on time performance since its first flight has remained over 90 per cent.

Uel Hoey, ‎Business Development Director at Belfast International Airport said, “The new Thomas Cook A321 has cut a real dash on the airfield and we are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive feedback that we have received. Thomas Cook offers a great range of destinations from Belfast and, as we will soon be coming in to the summer season, even greater numbers of Northern Ireland passengers will be able to experience this fantastic new aircraft.”

As well as holidays and flights available from Thomas Cook and Co-operative Travel stores in the Northern Ireland, Thomas Cook’s Summer 2014 holidays are available at or by calling 0844 412 5970. Seat only sales can be found at
