Winter 2020

Thomas Cook Scandinavia back in service

Thomas Cook Scandinavia division resumes flight operations by 24 September 2019 after UK division collapse on Monday 23 September.

Ving Group, Ving, Spies, Tjäreborg, Globetrotter and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia decide to support financially the Scandinavian division, by 1.5 million € since it was a profitable travel business.

As reported by management of Thomas Cook Scandinavia, the collapse of Mother Company Thomas Cook UK may not have direct impact on Scandinavian division, but there are consequences…

Since the hotel owners had a huge impact in many countries after Thomas Cook collapse, their policy in terms of credit and insurance issues will affect the market for Scandinavian division in the future.

The resume of flight operations by Thomas Cook Scandinavia is listed to the positive news for Skiathos traffic for the moment, but we have to wait for the initial flight requests for summer 2020.

During summer 2019 Thomas Cook Scandinavia operates two weekly flights (Copenhagen and Oslo) by 212 seat Airbus A321. Last Copenhagen flight was on 10 September 2019 and last Oslo flight on 17th.
