Airlines set for price war on Glasgow airport - Majorca route


Scottish travellers are set to benefit from a price war between two airlines on one of Glasgow airport's most popular routes. Two of Glasgow Airport's biggest airlines are going head-to-head to the Spanish island of Majorca from next summer, with passengers the clear winners.

Thomsonfly, the low-cost airline owned by travel giants Thomson, announced a new service between Glasgow and Palma, Majorca from 04.05.06. The airline will fly the route four times a week with one-way fares from £30.

The new flights will go in direct competition with budget and charter firms already flying the route from Glasgow, including flyglobespan. Flyglobespan immediately responded by saying it would make sure its lowest fares were 'a fiver less per sector' than Thomsonfly's.

A spokesman for the Thompsonfly said: 'The flights will mean that from next May, holidaymakers flying from Glasgow can enjoy low-fare flights with the most trusted name in the travel industry.' A spokesman for rival flyglobespan responded: 'Palma is our most popular destination. Scots holidaymakers have shown they trust flyglobespan and we are confident they will continue to support us.'

Stephen Baxter, Glasgow Airport managing director, added: 'This is Thomsonfly's first scheduled flight from Glasgow and it seems appropriate it should operate to Palma, as it is such a popular holiday destination from Glasgow.'

Majorca is Glasgow Airport's second most popular international destination after Amsterdam. 317,000 people travelled there on flights to and from Glasgow last year. For more information visit and
