PACKAGE holiday giants Thomson and First Choice today announced plans to double their presence at Leeds Bradford Airport, with new routes to Menorca, Ibiza, Rhodes, Tenerife.

The merged firm will also add a weekly flight to its existing Mallorca and Turkey routes.

The announcement this morning follows the launch earlier this year of routes from Leeds to Tunisia and Egypt’s Sharm El Sheikh.

Paul Cooper, airport negotiations manager for Thomson and First Choice, said: “Doubling capacity at Leeds Bradford Airport demonstrates our continued commitment to the Yorkshire region and following the success of our expanded programme announced earlier in the year at the airport, we know that the demand is there.”
