Thomas Cook Airlines is to launch a new direct flight service to Cuba from Glasgow Airport beginning November 2015.

The carrier, which recently announced it would begin flying a once-weekly direct from Glasgow to Las Vegas from May 2015, has also extended the service into the 2015 winter schedule.

Christoph Debus, cief executive of Thomas Cook Airlines, said: “On top of our recent great news of our regular flight to Las Vegas next summer, it’s fantastic news that we have extended this programme into the winter – and can offer flights to Cuba too as holidaymakers seek out that winter sun.

“Holidaymakers now have even more choice when looking for winter sun long haul flights from Glasgow.”

Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said: “This is yet further good news from Thomas Cook Airlines which has once again reaffirmed its commitment to Glasgow with the addition of yet another long haul destination.

“Earlier this year it confirmed it would introduce Scotland’s first direct, regular service to Las Vegas and we are delighted it will offer direct flights to Cuba.

“Not only does it have a rich culture, it is it the largest island in the Caribbean and is home to wonderful beaches which will no doubt prove popular with passengers, particularly during the winter months.”
