Thomas Cook ‘close to being sold to Polish OTA’

Thomas Cook is reportedly on the verge of being sold to a Polish online travel agent.

The brand’s owner, Fosun Tourism Group, is in advanced negotiations with eSky, according to Sky News.

A spokesperson for Thomas Cook declined to comment when contacted by Travel Weekly.

After Thomas Cook’s collapse in 2019, it was acquired by China’s Fosun for £11 million and relaunched as an online travel agent.

Sky News reported on January 15 that Fosun was in “advanced negotiations” to sell the brand to eSky, which is majority-owned by private equity firm MCI Capital. The firm focuses on central and eastern Europe.

City sources told Sky News that talks on a potential sale had been ongoing for some time and could conclude in the coming weeks.
