Thomas Cook scrap Almeria flights
Scottish holidaymakers face an almost 500 mile detour after flights between Glasgow Airport and Spain were scrapped. Thomas Cook has told Glasgow passengers they can still fly to and from Almeria - if they travel 230 miles or more each way to Manchester Airport.
The move comes a few months after the travel giant bought MyTravel, whose subsidiary Direct Holidays flew 5000 holidaymakers on more than 50 flights between Glasgow and Almeria in southern Spain last year. However, the new owners have decided to scrap the direct flights - even though hundreds of holidaymakers had already booked them.
A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said: ‘With flights to nearby Malaga and Alicante, visitors to the south of Spain continue to be well served even after this route was scrapped.’
