A first Emirates flight between Dubai and Britain's Stansted Airport touched down on Friday, making it the first scheduled long-haul airline to fly to London's third busiest airport as the city's two bigger hubs are almost full. The UK government wants to expand Heathrow Airport, the busiest in London, Britain and Europe, but a new runway won't be ready until 2026, which Stansted said will give it an opportunity to grow its connections to the rest of the world.
Thomas Cook Group Plc said this summer will be the last for its Club 18-30 brand, which has lured generations of Britons with the promise of sun, free-flowing alcohol and a high likelihood of a holiday hookup. While the allure of spring break-style mayhem proved irresistible to the youth of the 1980s and 1990s, today’s millennials want a more upscale experience -- or at least feel the need to suggest that they do in their social media accounts, according to the 175-year-old tour operator. Thomas Cook said early this week that 18-30 would be offloaded or closed and the company told Bloomberg Thursday that while 2018’s holidays will go ahead as planned, that will be the end of the line.
Club 18-30 will enjoy its final fling this summer after Thomas Cook (Frankfurt: A0MR3W - news) said it was to discontinue the sun, sex and booze brand.

British travel company Thomas Cook has set up a 150 million pound ($208 million) hotel fund as part of a plan to raise margins through new own-branded hotels. Thomas Cook, the company that pioneered the package holiday concept when it was set up in 1841, makes better margins from hotels which it owns and which tend to be higher-end and generate better customer loyalty. While the company sends holidaymakers to about 3,000 hotels across in destinations from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean and elsewhere, only about 190 of the properties are own-brand hotels operating under the names Casa Cook, Sunprime, and Sentido amongst others.

The owner of British budget airline Jet2.com said annual profit would be "materially ahead" of current expectations as pricing in the holiday market strengthened, lifting its shares. Parent company Dart said on Monday its profit for the twelve months ending March 31, 2018, would be boosted by "a more normalised pricing environment" for flights and holidays following a previous period of heavy discounting. Jet2.com, which last summer was Britain's fourth largest airline by passenger numbers and also sells holidays, would have benefited from the collapse of rival travel firm Monarch last year.
