Thomas Cook Airlines Becomes The 1st & Only UK Provider To Los Angeles Outside of London
For Manchester travellers who regularly visit Los Angeles or Boston, Thomas Cook has some exciting news! The airline has announced new routes from Manchester to both cities, which will launch in May 2016. This means that Manchester will be the only UK city, outside of London, with direct flights to the vibrant, USA hubs.
Travellers in the north of England currently need to fly via London or make a stop-over in the USA or Europe, therefore the move will be a welcome one for regular and first-time visitors. With a new Airbus A330 launching in 2016, Thomas Cook Airlines tops the list as the biggest long haul carrier at Manchester airport.
Flights are on sale now for next May, with flights from approximately £250, so jump onto Thomas Cook to check it out. If you’ve never been to Los Angeles or Boston, here’s a snippet of what you can expect.
Los Angeles has a lot more to offer than the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, though that’s certainly one of the main drawcards. Yes, you can spend much of your time relaxing in chic cafes and celebrity spotting or drinking cocktails in some of the world’s most exclusive clubs, but there’s also a host of attractions and fun adventures waiting for you.
Visit the Getty Centre in Brentwood for art, architecture and the gorgeous Central Garden. Take the legendary Studio Tour at Universal Studios, catch a concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and hike in the Runyon Canyon Park. As the weather is usually mild all-year round, you can chill out on stunning beaches, including Santa Monica Beach with its iconic pier and Ferris Wheel and Venice Beach for people watching, arts and crafts and live street entertainment.
You may know Boston only as a college or major league sports town, famous for the prestigious Harvard University and the Boston Red Sox. But, the city is also a charming tourist spot, with a European air, among modern skyscrapers and a wealth of historical events to delve into.
Walk the Freedom Trail to see landmarks such as the Paul Revere House and Boston Common. Head to Beantown to explore the Museum of Fine Arts, shop till you drop on Newbury Street and catch a baseball game at the home of the Red Sox, Fenway Park. You can chill out at the Boston Public Garden, sample the restaurants and shops at vibrant Faneuil Hall Marketplace and visit Fort Point Channel for the Institute of Contemporary Art and an arty vibe among warehouses and bars.
