Customers of Thomson and First Choice will be able to fly to Cancun and Sanford, on the new Dreamliner aircraft. With advanced technology, the lower cabin pressure means you’ll even feel refreshed when you arrive at your holiday destination.

Are you ready to get inspired? Here’s a look at the delights in store, from Cancun and Sanford.
Sanford is located halfway between the exciting theme parks of Orlando and some of Florida’s spectacular beaches, making it the perfect gateway for your USA trip. The city itself, offers 19th century buildings, a bustling waterfront, a downtown river walk, a performing arts centre and a wealth of shops, restaurants and entertainment options.
Florida is easy to explore and choc-full of a variety of attractions for any type of holiday you can imagine. Head to Miami for quirky glamour, the beach, nightlife and art-décor architecture. Glitzy Palm Beach is home to the rich and famous, Florida Keys is the place to go sailing, fishing, diving and swimming and St Augustine delivers the charm of the colonial era.
Orlando, of course, is one of the biggest drawcards for tourists, namely because of the world-famous theme parks. Between Walt Disney World, Universal, Sea World and numerous water parks, the kids won’t know which way to turn. Whichever way you decide to go, one thing’s for certain – you’ll have a ride of a time!
Famous as a ‘spring break’ destination for rollicking students, Cancun is much more than a beach party, though it lives up to its reputation. With powder-soft sand, pristine water and tropical weather, you can certainly laze away the days in the company of the sun.
With the rich, intriguing history of the Mayans, you’ll discover ancient pyramids, such as Chichen Itza, and fascinating heritage. Visit Tulum to get your fix of Mayan ruins, take a bird watching tour, swim with dolphins, spot sea turtles and pick up souvenirs with unique shopping opportunities.
The incredible range of accommodation ensures singles, couples, groups and families are catered for, with all budgets and needs covered. When the sun sets, the only problem you’ll have is choosing which vibrant club or bar to have your first cocktail in.
