Introducing our Pride Plane…

Showing our support for Manchester Pride from 35,000 feet in the air!

This year we have emblazoned one of our long-haul aircraft with a special rainbow edition of the airline’s heart logo.  The A330 carrier will embark on its first journey with the colourful logo on 7th June and will be taking you to destinations such as San Francisco and New York from Manchester Airport!

In 2017, we first adorned one our A321’s with the rainbow heart to support LGBT+ people in celebration of our sponsorship of Manchester prides “The Big Weekend” event.

This year we have gone all out! by including the heart on one of our largest long-haul planes.

Mark Fletcher, CEO of Manchester Pride, said: “Once again, we’re thrilled to see the LGBT+ logo take to the skies in such a unique fashion. We’ve been so lucky to be able to work with Thomas Cook Airlines on this exciting project for the second time and it’s just one of the many ways we can all help spread the message and show support for LGBT+ people across the world.”





We are the official sponsors of Manchester Pride’s The Big Weekend which takes place from Friday 24th to Monday 27th August, along with“The Thomas Cook Airlines Stage” which will see headline performances this year from Rita Ora, Jake Shears and Alexandra Burke. Tens of thousands of people from across the UK and Europe flock to Manchester’s world-renowned Gay Village for the event and to watch the parade.  

The new logo takes several hours and a team of specialists to construct onto the air carrier. For a timelapse video from last year’s logged aircraft, visit:
