After one of the most turbulent years in its history, Thomas Cook this morning announced a new boss for the group, following a number of other milestones in May, including the sale in its stake of Thomas Cook India, a new £1.4 billion refinancing deal, a new chief financial officer and the planned sale of 17 aircraft to raise around £183 million.
Thomas Cook is using its near-collapse as a chance to re-invent the operation through a series of asset sales as well as turning back to the agents who can drive bookings.
