Q. Which Airlines do you use?
We use a range of airlines for our fly-cruise holidays, which vary depending on your destination.
For our Mediterranean fly-cruise holidays, we use a mixture of charter and scheduled carriers including Thomson Airways, Thomas Cook Airlines, Jet2,easyJet and Air Malta.
For our long-haul Caribbean fly-cruise holidays, we charter aircraft from Thomson Airlines, Thomas Cook Airways and Virgin Atlantic. On occasion we’ll also use British Airways and Virgin Atlantic scheduled flights. We are pleased to be able to offer flight upgrades on our charter flights from time of booking.
On both Mediterranean and Caribbean fly-cruise holidays, the available carrier and aircraft will vary by ship, departure date and UK departure airport.
For our Exotic fly-cruises, the airlines we use vary depending on the destination, but include British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways. If you wish to tailor your flights, we can arrange for you to travel with your preferred airline, book a stop-over or upgrade your flight. Contact either your travel agent or call our Customer Contact Centre on 0843 374 0111 (calls cost 3p per minute plus your telephone company’s network access charge) to discuss your plans. Scheduled flight details and upgrades are available approximately 11 months prior to departure.
Once your flights are confirmed, you will be able to find your flight details via Cruise Personaliser.
- The flights you are allocated will depend upon availability at the time you make your cruise booking.
- Occasionally airlines make changes to their schedules over which P&O Cruises has no control, in which case an alternative flight may need to be provided.
- P&O Cruises has no control over which aircraft the airline uses, so the configuration and seat pitch can vary.
- If your journey is made up of more than one flight sector, such as a regional UK flight to London to meet an international connection, it is unlikely that the same aircraft type will be used for the whole journey.
