Thomas Cook Airlines UK and German sister airline Condor, are collaborating with Boeing to co-host a three-day conference in October.
Airlines operating 757s and 767s have been invited to the conference which aims to discuss and share technical, operational and safety information. In a break with tradition, the regular event is to be held in Manchester instead of in Seattle where Boeing is based.
Around 70 delegates from Boeing and European-based airlines are expected to attend the conference to be held at Manchester Airport from October 25 to 27.
We are delighted to be co-hosting this event, said Chris Hubbard, Engineering and Maintenance Director for Thomas Cook Airlines. Exchange of information at these gatherings is extremely useful in helping both Boeing and airline operators to consistently improve performance in a range of areas.
The Manchester venue should enable UK & European airlines who have found it difficult in the past to get to Seattle to attend the conference and we look forward to welcoming them along with Boeing.
