    RIU hotels in POP are sold, they had a contract with RIU so looks like the new owners has already another company to work for them.

    Hopefully, for UK flyers, the Thos Cook 42% ownership of Aldiana Hotels will offer flights.

    This was mentioned in the NoCoast Upgrade thread.

    Thos Cook partners with Air Transat too

    Apparently it is only fights to/from Manchester which are cancelled. London Gatwick is on going. Uk Dominican Spouses FB page.

    "Just had a conversation with Thomson also and they have confirmed from Oct 2018 flights from Manchester ONLY will be no more. Due to unpopular demand. Gatwick etc is still ongoing. They aren’t sure if this will change in the future"

    Where did you hear this? Not that I don't believe you but there are different stories being told. I hope it's not true but fear it may be.

    Well because most airlines do not release flight schedules that far into the future.

    Exactly ten months is a very long time for a charter airline like TUI/Thomson. I'm sure that any announcement like this does not come directly from the horses mouth and is purely speculation. However, rumours like these to tend to have a habit of becoming true. But until the official announcement, that's all it is, a rumour.
