Celebrating 5 years of PRIDE

Once again showing our support for Manchester Pride from 35,000 feet in the air, a flight with a difference set off from Manchester airport to San Francisco on 19th August 2019.

Check out the video below!

The Thomas Cook Airlines aircraft had an LGBT+ crew and was emblazoned with a special edition PRIDE heart decal.  It’s one of five planes to receive the PRIDE heart this year, representing five years of support for Manchester Pride and 50 years since the Stonewall riots.

The celebrations begin when a rainbow Metrolink tram arriving at the airport station carrying Thomas Cook Airlines crew, pilots and customers.  At the gate, customers were greeted with a colourful Pride party, a Gaydio DJ set, performances from House of Suarez and some other surprises.

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, since then we #flywithpride every August and hope to continue our support for Manchester Pride and LGBT+ community.

Hope to see you at Manchester Pride kicking off on Friday 23rd August!
