Thomson Airways Limited, more commonly referred to as simply Thomson, is the world’s largest charter airline. Currently, the airline has 61 active aircraft – all Boeing models – and three additional orders on the way. Based at London-Gatwick and flying from a host of airports up and down the UK and Republic of Ireland, Thomson delivers passengers to destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.
Thomson was formed following a 2007 merger of TUI AG and First Choice Holidays. A year later, their respective airlines became one and subsequently rebranded to become the Thomson Airways that we all know today.
Last year alone, the airline carried an excess of 10.6 million passengers on 53,869 flights, all over the world. Titling Thomson Airways the third largest UK Airline. It is just topped by Easyjet and British Airways.
How to Use Plane Finder’s Flight Tracker to Track Thomson Flight Status
As the largest global charter airline and one of the UK’s largest airlines, it is likely that you will, at one point, need to track a Thomson Airways flight status.
Enabling you to track any Thomson flight status either via our Database or by using our desktop flight tracker, which is now available on both desktop and mobile (iOS and Android), Plane Finder is the easiest way to do this.
Track Thomson flight status using the flight number on either Plane Finder’s desktop or mobile flight tracker.
The easiest way to track any Thomson Airways flight status is to search for the flight itself by using its specific flight number.
This will immediately pull up all of the information surrounding the flight and aircraft, including;
- The Thomson flight’s progression.
- Aircraft type.
- Current land speed.
- Scheduled and expected arrival time.
- Departure and arrival airports.
For those keener plane spotters who are after more detailed facts, Plane Finder’s flight tracker will also pull through more information relating to the specific Thomson Airways aircraft type and registration details, its tracking source, operating days, based airfield and more.
Track Thomson flight status by adding a Thomson Airways filter on Plane Finder’s desktop or mobile flight tracker
If you don’t know the specific flight number of the Thomson plane you wish to track, there is an alternative method. Plane Finder allows you to add an aircraft filter offering the ability to filter out all flights that are not Thomson Airways.
Once established, if you know the aircraft’s flight path, you can manually select the plane – by a small process of elimination. This will then pull through the same details as before, including the Thomson Airways flight status.
Track Thomson flight status via airport departure and arrival boards on Plane Finder’s desktop or mobile flight tracker
If you don’t know the plane’s flight number or path, fortunately, there is a third way that you can utilise Plane Finder. By knowing the approximate departure/arrival time and the departure or arrival airport you can select the fight you’re after from live departure or arrival boards. Please note you can search for an airport via Plane Finder’s smart search bar.
Once finding and selecting either airport, Plane Finder will display the live departure and arrival boards. From here, you can then click on the Thomson flight you wish to track manually from its approximate arrival or departure time. This will take a little bit of trial and error, but is just as efficient and will pull through the exact same aircraft and flight status details as before.
