Airline Biography

TUI Airlines UK (Thomson) (Real World) Information;

Thomson Airways Limited, often referred to as Thomson, is the world's largest charter airline, offering scheduled and charter flights from the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland to destinations in Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. The airline carried 10.6 million passengers in 2015, making it the third-largest UK airline by total passengers, after EasyJet and British Airways.

The airline was formed following the merger of the travel division of TUI AG and First Choice Holidays plc in September 2007 to form TUI Travel. The two companies' respective airlines, Thomsonfly and First Choice Airways, were merged under the former's Air Operator's Certificate in May 2008, and were rebranded as Thomson Airways on 1 November 2008. TUI Travel merged with TUI AG to form TUI Group in December 2014.

Due to the merger and formation of the TUI Group, all of the group's airlines are expected to be rebranded under the new TUI Group brand starting from 2015. However Fritz Joussen has stated that this rebrand could take five to ten years to complete.

The registered office is at the TUI Travel House in Crawley, West Sussex but its head office is located in Wigmore House in Luton, Bedfordshire.

Thomson Airways Limited holds a United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Type A Operating Licence permitting it to carry passengers, cargo and mail on aircraft with 20 or more seats.

Thomson Airways is due to officially change its legal name to TUI Airlines UK by the end of 2017.  All Thomson current & new aircraft are currently being painted with the TUI branding.
This will be in line with its sister companies TUI fly Belguim, TUI fly Deutschland, TUI fly Nederland.
