Dublin Airport welcomed Thomson Airways 787 Dreamliner for the first time to Ireland last week. The visit was to celebrate the launch of two long-haul routes to Mexico and Jamaica direct from Dublin Airport during summer 2016 and to showcase the aircraft to the travel industry.
DAA Chief Executive Kevin Toland said Dublin Airport was delighted to welcome the Dreamliner aircraft and was pleased for Falcon, Thomson and Thomson Airways that it will enter service next summer, taking passengers from Ireland to Mexico and Jamaica. He added that the Dreamliner has created significant new opportunities for TUI’s brands in the Irish market. “Thomson’s decision to operate a Dreamliner from Dublin Airport brings additional choice into the market and we look forward to working with them to promote these new routes and to expand the company’s overall business at Dublin Airport.”
Chris Logan, Head of Ireland for Falcon and Thomson, said it was a special day to have the 787 Dreamliner touch down in Dublin only two years after Thomson Airways became the first UK airline to operate the revolutionary aircraft.
“It is even more special to have the aircraft flown in by Managing Director John Murphy with TUI Aviation’s Chief Operating Officer Chris Browne and Director of Engineering Jason Mahoney on board – all of Irish descent.”
