Thomson to deploy 787 Dreamliner to Pula

NEWS FLASH


Thomson Airways will upgrade its equipment on seasonal flights between London Gatwick and Pula next summer by introducing the 300-seat Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft on the route. According to "Avioradar", the service will run twice per week from May 1, 2018, with the B787 utilised on Tuesdays and the B757 on Saturdays. As a result, Pula will become the second airport in Croatia with scheduled Dreamliner flights, as Thomson already operates the type on its services to Dubrovnik. Thomson's B787-8 has the capacity to seat 47 passengers in its Premium Club cabin and a further 253 in economy.

  2. This is pretty amazing, especially when you consider how few wide bodies are used on intra European flights. Good job!
