Thomas Cook Airlines has added an extra economy ticket option that allows passengers to have priority boarding, increased luggage allowance and free in-flight drinks.

The new ticket, called Economy PLUS, is available on short and medium-haul flights departing from November 1.

The upgrade is on sale now.

Customers choosing the Economy PLUS package can use a priority security lane and check-in, an additional 4kg of hand luggage, 25kg of hold luggage, the option to reserve a seat, complimentary in-flight drinks and premium James Martin meal.

They will also have access to Thomas Cook's mobile in-flight entertainment service, Sunstream.

Group head of product Andy Gillies said: "The flight is such an important part of the travel experience, so we wanted to make sure that our customers have a choice between a price-sensitive offering like our regular economy class, as well as a more inclusive package that offers greater relaxation.

"With Economy Plus, customers will be able to board faster, take more with them, and relax in-flight from start to finish."
