THOMSON has
launched a programme into Bulgaria for the first time for summer 2004 after
predicting it is set to become the new holiday hot spot.

The new
Thomson Summer Sun 2004 brochure features 10 properties on the Black Sea, with
flights out of Gatwick and Manchester. Other additions for 2004 include an
expanded cruise programme and new long-haul twin-centre holidays.

The majority
of Thomson’s 2004 holidays have already gone on sale but brochures will reach
travel agents over the next fortnight. Airtours and Thomas Cook’s JMC and
Sunset brands launched their 2004 brochures last week, two weeks earlier than
normal.
