PETERBOROUGH, England, Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomas Cook, the travel experts who offer holidays worldwide, launched its first edition Wintersun 2011/12 brochure in store on 10th February 2011 and introduced the up and coming destination of Cape Verde for the first time.
Featuring two great properties for Winter 2011/12 - The Iberostar Club and Royal Decameron in the key resort of Boa Vista - Thomas Cook will offer weekly Friday flights from Manchester with the first departing on 4th November 2011.
Richard Calvert, MD Thomas Cook tour operations said, "This is an exciting addition to our winter programme providing agents with alternative destinations for customers who are keen to try somewhere new. Less than sevens hours flying time, Cape Verde offers a variety of landscapes, amazing beaches, high quality accommodation and year round sunshine and we are confident this will be a popular choice for the coming winter."
