Thomas Cook rescue programme from Tunisia sees last rescue flight return

Thomas Cook UK and Ireland’s rescue programme from Tunisia saw its last rescue flight return customers home from Tunisia yesterday. Manny Fontenla-Novoa, group CEO for Thomas Cook Group plc, said that at times like these, the benefits of booking a package holiday came into their own. “As soon as we were made aware of the FCO changing its travel advice on Thursday night, we worked around the clock to put in place our rescue programme and we are happy to confirm the speedy return of six of our rescue flights, which landed back safely in the UK yesterday,” she added. “With all the aircraft full, around 1,500 Thomas Cook British holidaymakers have now returned from Tunisia. One further flight is scheduled to return to Monastir Airport [yesterday afternoon] to bring back our remaining holidaymakers, who are in the safe hands of our experienced teams in resort.”
