Hello & welcome onboard Ready for a drink or a bite to eat? You’ll be pleased to hear we’ve revamped our food and drink line-up this summer. You’ll still find lots of your favourites, but there are some newcomers we think you’ll love. Our intense and spicy Cabernet Sauvignon became the talk of the wine world last year when it scooped Best Red Wine at the Skyscanner Airline Wine Awards 2012. And we’re proud to say it’s still a Thomson Airways exclusive. Since then, we’ve tested dozens of white and rosé wines to find ones that hit the same high standards as our award-winning red. The name that came out on top? Frontera, from the house of Concha Y Toro. Find out more about the world’s best-selling Chilean wine on page 10. And remember to check out your copy of inflight. It’s packed with everything from heavenly scents to hot new beauty must-haves, as well as a great range of spirits. You’ll also find some fantastic travel features to give you inspiration for your next holiday. SUMMER

Enjoy your flight,

Pssst... We recycle on our flights into the UK. Please lend a hand by only passing our crew the items they’re collecting at the time. Thanks for your support.

Did you know? Coca-Cola and WWF have joined forces for a three-year campaign called Arctic Home. The aim of the project is to help preserve the home of the polar bear. The gentle giants rely on the Arctic ice to hunt, roam and raise their cubs, but the ice is melting fast and their future’s in danger. We’re delighted to support Coca-Cola in their quest, by selling their drinks onboard. For more details or to donate to the fund, visit www.arctichome.com

You hydrate we donate Quench your thirst with Thirsty Planet water and you’ll be doing your bit to help support communities in Africa. A donation is made to the charity Pump Aid with every bottle sold of the naturally-sourced British H2O. The money funds clean water projects in Malawi and Zimbabwe, and Thomson Airways customers have already donated £184,000. The money has paid for more than 570 pumps, which provide clean, safe water to thousands of people.

YOU HYDRATE. WE DONATE.

A blend of perfumes and aromas that vary from hints of flowers to green apple and apricots. In the mouth this Prosecco is both dry and soft. A full bodied wine, deep ruby in colour with an aroma of cassis, rhubarb and hint of leather. Giving you an explosion of red fruit and spice on the palate.

Made from hand picked Sauvignon Blanc grapes, this delightful un-oaked Sauvignon is fresh and crisp with lemon and grapefruit aromas on the nose and soft fruit flavours in the mouth, notably peach and apricot. The finish is clean, fresh and zingy.

Made from a blend of Cabernet and Shiraz grapes harvested from Chile’s Central Valley. This moreish rosé has sweet, ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit upfront with a delicious creamy candyfloss and strawberry finish.
