Tips for a relaxed flight

Here are some helpful tips:

  • Drink plenty of fluids! The air in the aircraft is extremely dry. We recommend bringing a bottle of water with you in addition to using the beverage service on board. You can purchase a bottle of water at the airport after the hand baggage screening.
  • Travel in comfortable, non-restrictive, loose clothing. Comfortable shoes and thicker socks will keep your feet warm during the flight.
  • Bring warm clothing or a small blanket with you into the cabin. Some passengers feel that the air-conditioning on board is a bit cool.
  • Bringing a travel pillow and a sleeping mask will make sleeping on the plane more comfortable.
  • If you have a cold: use nose drops before take-off, and drink more than usual. This will keep your nose clear, and it will be easier for your ears to compensate for the pressure change during take-off and landing.
  • An aeroplane sometimes shakes or makes unfamiliar noises. That is perfectly normal and no reason for you to worry.

General Information

Smoking on board

All flights operated by Thomas Cook Airlines are non-smoking flights. Please understand that this is in response to our customers' preference for a nicotine-free environment on the aircraft.

We regret that the use of e-cigarettes on board is also not permitted.

Electronic devices on board

For safety reasons, electronic devices must be completely shut off during take-off and landing. It prohibited to use any devices that may potentially interfere with the on-board electronics.

You may use the following devices on board:
Laptops and notebook computers, CD and MP3 players, Gameboys and video camcorders. Mobile phones and tablets can only be used if set to flight mode.

The following devices cannot be used in the aircraft:
Radios and radio-controlled devices (toys), minidisc recorders in recording mode, printers, wireless mice and CD-ROM burners.

Health care

Please check to see what immunizations, vaccinations and other preventive measures are required before travelling. You should also ask your doctor about thrombosis and other health risks if you aren't sure.

You can obtain general information from public health agencies, doctors specialised in travel medicine, travel-related health and diseases (emporiatrics) or tropical medicine, and travellers’ health information services.


The entire fleet has been equipped with defibrillators for medical emergencies, e.g. cardiac arrest. A defibrillator automatically checks a person's heart rhythm. If it recognises life-threatening ventricular fibrillation, it tells the rescuer when an electric shock is needed, which the rescuer triggers with the push of a button.

Thomas Cook Airlines cabin crew members have been taught how to use defibrillators in regular training courses.

Disinfection on board

Health authorities in some countries require all airlines to spray the cabin both before and after landing with 'Standard Reference Aerosol' (SRA). This product is designated as non-hazardous to health by the WHO (World Health Organization). The active ingredient of this aerosol is natural pyrethrum, a chrysanthemum extract that degrades within a few hours.

This measure is intended to prevent animal or plant diseases from being brought into the country. The following countries require disinfection of the cabin: Barbados, Cuba, India, Jamaica, Madeira, Mauritius, Maldives, Mexico, Seychelles and Trinidad/Tobago.
