Thomas Cook Airlines is launching a new weekly flight from Norwich Airport to Dalaman, Turkey.

Henry Sunley, commercial director at Thomas Cook Airlines, said: “Turkey is a really popular destination for our customers and we are very pleased to add Norwich airport to our growing number of UK airports.

“We now have more than 140 weekly departures to Turkey from fourteen airports across the UK.”

The new flight comes as the Thomas Cook Holiday Report 2018 reveals that holidaymakers are returning to Turkey this summer with a surge in bookings compared to last year.
