Irish holidaymakers will be able to fly direct to Mexico and Jamaica next summer

Holidaymakers can fly direct to Mexico and Jamaica next summer thanks to a stunning new service by tour operators Thomson Airways and Falcon Holidays.

The Thomson 787 Dreamliner touched down on Irish soil for the very first time this morning to celebrate the launch of two long-haul routes to Cancun, Mexico and Montego Bay, Jamaica direct from Dublin Airport during summer 2016.

The Irish Mirror was onboard for a special around-the-country flight to celebrate the launch.

So what’s so special about the new aircraft?

Well, as we glided over the North and down to Cork the atmosphere on board oozed relaxation.

The key and most important feature is the generous legroom and wider seats.

It's super fancy with a sleek design and we're not just talking about the expensive seats which there are 47 of.

Other special features include larger windows with special lighting so you can admire the view from the clouds better.

The Dreamliner also boasts a state of the art in-flight entertainment systems.

It really is a dream, pardon the pun, aircraft and we only wished we were flying to Mexico instead of Monaghan.

The aircraft can fly much further distances than similar-sized aircraft, allowing it to reach far flung destinations such as Mexico and Jamaica without the need to refuel as it uses 20% less fuel.

TUI Aviation’s Chief Operating Officer Chris Browne and Director of Engineering Jason Mahoney were on board the inaugural flight to Dublin, flown by Thomson Airways’ Managing Director John Murphy and welcomed to Dublin by Chris Logan, Head of Ireland for Falcon and Thomson.

Speaking this morning Chris Logan said: “The introduction of the Dreamliner is a major milestone in our journey of modernising the holiday experience.

Irish customers will be amazed at the unique look, feel and service — all of which will ensure the unique Falcon and Thomson holiday experience starts as soon as they step on board this fabulous new aircraft.”

Chris Browne, COO of TUI Aviation added: “The aim has always been to ensure we offer Dreamliner services from different regions across the UK and Ireland so that customers can experience this aircraft from their doorstep.

"Feedback from customers and crew who have already flown on the Dreamliner has been extremely positive and we are delighted to be further expanding the fleet so that even more of our long haul customers can make the most of the Thomson 787 Dreamliner.”

Falcon and Thomson’s long haul programmes to Mexico’s Caribbean Coast and to the Caribbean Island of Jamaica are now available to book through your local Falcon Travel Shop.
