Fosun have an interesting history and deep pockets, but will people trust the brand anymore?

Patrick Doyle • 1 month ago

It is, one has to say extraordinary timing to relaunch Thomas Cook as an OTA. I suppose the idea is putting your toe in the water as it were while things are quiet. Fosun are playing the long game, Covid-19 will not be around for ever and when the upturn comes they will have everything in situ, when you have sound finances it is a good strategy.

Good luck, just sad that the Fosun timing is not more welcoming.

Their website has been accepting clients to sign up for updates for several months. This is not really news as TW would suggest.

The headline says the new OTA has just received an Atol licence, is that not news?

Why do you post negatively on everything going? Must have a lot of time on your hands

I actually read the article in full and not just the headline.

The travel industry at the moment is quite negative. Once things improve, maybe my tone will too.

It is a positive step to provide an alternative carrier for 2021, especially considering TUI would have monopoly over the UK OTA market. Chinese money is just has good as any other currency, lets get the Travel Industry back moving again.

They are not an "alternative carrier" they are an "additional online travel agent". Big difference.

Not forgetting Jet2 and EasyJet Holidays. Pales significance of course.

I think I’d rather throw an egg at my neighbours window than travel with TCX Jenkins
