Holiday operators Thomson and First Choice are launching a new route from Belfast International Airport to the Greek island of Rhodes.

The new route, set to begin next May, is part of the new summer 2016 package deals on offer from the two firms.

Rhodes is the largest and most popular of the Greek islands boasting long blue flag beaches, ancient ruins and historically significant sites.

Flights will leave every Tuesday with prices, including accommodation, beginning around the £750 mark based on two people sharing.

Also in brochures for next year will be new resorts and activities.

Chris Logan, head of Ireland for Thomson, said: “We're excited to announce the new destination of Rhodes and the latest additions to the summer 2016 programme.

"We have expanded our collections for families to ensure customers continue to get the range of holidays they expect from Thomson and First Choice.

“Thanks to the new route, there are now more opportunities for holidaymakers from Northern Ireland to discover and explore the most popular of the Greek Islands.

"Rhodes is known as one of the seven wonders of the world and offers the best of everything; whether that’s a cultural journey through past civilisations or the perfect family getaway.”
