Thomas Cook’s Aircraft – Where Are They Now?

thomas cook aircraft

On 23 September we faced the sad news that the UK’s oldest holiday company, Thomas Cook, had closed down after 178 years.

With it went the company’s UK airline fleet (partner carriers in Germany and Scandinavia have continued flying).

Now the dust has settled somewhat, we take a look at what has happened to the airline’s fleet of aircraft following disposal. This list is of the aircraft being operated by the UK arm on the day the carrier ceased flying (aside from those on lease from Avion Express etc).


This list will change as aircraft find new owners; we’ll endeavour to keep it up-to-date.
