Red Sea Holidays

It seems not all is lost but I've heard Fly Egypt are to operate the Birmingham Hughada flight once a week on behalf of Red Sea Holidays as a replacement for the Thomas Cook flight.

That was really tragic that Thomas Cook went under. They've always been around in my memory.

Hopefully somebody else will step up and fill the void with a better service so as to keep the Resorts going.

In about 1960 my current boyfriend worked for Pickfords Removals and they had just acquired Thom. Cook if my memory serves me right.

I shall have to look into this. :tk

That timing is about right MD - Thomas Cook has ALWAYS been within my memory.

I see the Thomas Cook shops have been taken over by Hays Travel so maybe other parts of the Group may also get buyers. At least a few of the staff will keep their jobs hopefully.
