Pilots union backs Thomas Cook rescue plan







Pilots union BALPA has thrown its weight behind the proposed rescue plan announced by Thomas Cook.

In a statement today it said it hoped the proposed investment deal would boost confidence among consumers, staff, creditors, and regulatory bodies.

General secretary Brian Strutton said: "Hopefully this announcement signals the beginning of the end to the uncertainty that has been hanging over Thomas Cook.

"I strongly support the company's moves to find new investment in order to ensure a strong and successful future for the tour operator and the Thomas Cook airline.

"I hope this deal will boost consumer, creditor, regulatory, and staff confidence in the company's future and I've written to the Secretary of State asking him to do all he can to help.

"On behalf of the 600 pilots employed by Thomas Cook we hope this deal comes to pass.

"Thomas Cook is a much-loved company with a great British history extending back over 170 years, but it is one which is in need of investment."
