Thomas Cook Revived?

Hey, I saw this article the other day and was like whhhattt? Does this mean Thomas Cook is not shutting down after all?

I don’t think this is about the airline but it’s more about Hays Travel acquiring the entire Thomas Cook Group along with some of its employees and all stores.

The main Thomas Cook brand is over.


Hays Travel, the independent travel agent that bought the former Thomas Cook retail portfolio, saving 555 shops and more than 2,000 jobs just a month ago, took to the skies today (November 12).
Four specially chartered Jet2 planes took off from Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted London airports this morning, with more than 700 branch managers on board, heading for the company’s 30th annual retail managers’ conference.
There was a VIP welcome from the three airports for the Hays Travel passengers, attending their first conference since the company acquired the Thomas Cook retail portfolio.
The acquisition just four weeks ago has trebled the number of Hays Travel shops on the high streets of the UK. In just one month 450 of the former Thomas Cook shops are now open again and trading, and 2,000 people who had lost their jobs are now employed on permanent contracts. Hays Travel now employs over 4,000 people and recruitment continues, with vacancies open to the entire travel industry and beyond.


Oh… ok I see.
