Thomas Cook Group
Greece ranked fourth, behind Spain, Turkey and Germany, among the destinations that Thomas Cook tour operator customers in Germany visited this summer, the company has announced.
German arrivals in Greece increased 10.6 percent year-on-year in the period from January to August 2016 to exceed 2 million.
Bucking the trend that has charter companies from Scandinavian countries canceling their flights to Lesvos for this summer due to the migration crisis, Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia and the Danish travel agency Spies have persisted with the eastern Aegean island, starting their service for this summer season on Sunday, May 15.
An inquest by Wakefield Coroner’s Court into the deaths of Bobby and Christi Sheherd, aged six and seven when they died while on a holiday to Corfu, found that tour operators Thomas Cook “breached their duty of care.” The children died from carbon monoxide poisoning due to a faulty boiler while on holiday in 2006.
