Thomas Cook, one of the oldest and most famous travel agencies in the world, declared bankruptcy last year and suspended all its business operations.
But according to British media, Thomas Cook is returning, but only as an online travel agency. So, we can forget Thomas Cook as he was before, without a strong network of planes and hotels, but from now on only as an online travel agency.
The brand’s owner, China’s Fosun, wants to revive Britain’s oldest travel company within weeks to be able to be in the game at the start of bookings for next summer.
Fosun was already a major shareholder in TC, and last November he paid £ 11m to buy out the rights to be able to use the Thomas Cook logo, website and social media accounts.
Thomas Cook needs to get a license from the regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority, and according to the BBC, she could get it within a few days. Interestingly, the website is also active, but for now it does not reveal much, except that some news from the company can be expected soon.
