Thomas Cook Group plc was a British global travel group. It was formed on 19 June 2007 by the merger of Thomas Cook AG (itself the successor to Thomas Cook & Son) and MyTravel Group. The group operated in two separate segments: a tour operator and an airline. Thomas Cook went into compulsory liquidation on 23 September 2019.
Thomas Cook was listed on both the London Stock Exchange and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The Thomas Cook Group ceased trading on 23 September 2019 and entered administration. Around 9,000 UK staff and 21,000 worldwide were left without jobs and 160,000 customers left abroad, triggering the UK's largest peacetime repatriation since the collapse of Monarch Airlines in 2017.
