Discover your smile in summer 2017 with Thomson and First Choice - New flights to Gran Canaria

Northern Ireland’s leading tour operators, Thomson and First Choice, part of the TUI Group, today launched their summer 2017 programmes with a wide range of holidays to suit the needs of both families and adults alike.

The summer 2017 line-up includes a new programme to Gran Canaria and additional flights to Majorca over the high season, as well as new exclusive options to the company’s product ranges. Holidaymakers from Northern Ireland will have a new Splashworld resort in Tenerife to choose from as well as new properties across the exclusive range of Suneoclub and Sensimar collections.

Thomson and First Choice are offering an exciting new programme to Gran Canaria for summer 2017. Holidaymakers from Northern Ireland have long favoured this popular holiday destination, with 147 miles of golden Saharan shores and an average annual temperature of 24 degrees – making it the perfect destination for some summer sun.

Thomson and First Choice also confirm that their teams in resort will be re-branded to TUI from May this year. When customers arrive in resort they will simply need to follow the smile – the distinctive logo that both Thomson and TUI share.

This forms part of the move that will see the Thomson brand transition to TUI in Northern Ireland over the next 18 months. Customers in resort will have access to even more knowledge about their destination from an international team of local experts and seasoned country specialists with the reassurance of having people on the ground with years of experience to deal with any eventuality.

Chris Logan, Head of Ireland for Thomson and First Choice, says, “We are delighted to announce our summer 2017 programme from Belfast International Airport, with a new programme to Gran Canaria as well as additional flights to Majorca throughout the high-season. We are pleased once again to expand our product offering with the introduction of a new Splashworld resort in Tenerife, as well as new properties across the exclusive range of Suneoclub and Sensimar collections.

All this, combined with our fantastic TUI resort teams dedicated to looking after our customers every need, it really has never been easier to enjoy your perfect holiday”.
