The British airline and tour service Thomas Cook has shut down operations and had its stock delisted. The British government has organized charter flights to get stranded Britons home, and will be paying for hostel/hotel expenses for stranded travelers.
Thomas Cook subsidiary Condor (once Lufthansa’s charter airline) has been seeking a buyer, and is currently trying to arrange for a bailout from the German government to allow it to continue operations.
Thomas Cook was one of the world’s oldest travel companies, having been founded in 1841.
