Transat ‘confident’ it will still receive A321 aircraft from Thomas Cook as part of agreement

    Transat AT spokesman Christophe Hennebelle said the company’s partnership with Thomas Cook is “dead because the company no longer exists” (Delta Optimist, 23-Sep-2019). As previously reported by CAPA, Thomas Cook Group Airlines and Air Transat signed a seven year agreement, whereby Thomas Cook would make a number of A321s available to Air Transat every winter and receive at least one A330-200 in return. Mr Hennebelle noted Transat is “confident” it will still receive the A321 aircraft, but said it is “not waiting until the last minute” and is “working to receive the planes”, as well as “thinking of other plans to make sure that the schedule will be respected”.
