Finnish holiday company Tjäreborg is resuming its charter flights today.

The company canceled their Thomas Cook Scandinavia charter flights on Monday as a precaution after their parent company went bankrupt.

Five flights and 525 passengers were hit by Monday’s cancelations.

However the company’s board decided to get back to business as of Tuesday.

“The situation regarding the Thomas Cook Group and its staff and customers is extremely regrettable, but it is my responsibility to ensure that our Nordic unit continues its journey” says Magnus Wikner, CEO of Thomas Cook Northern Europe in a statement.

“As an independent and profitable company, we have succeeded in securing the continuity of our business with banks, financier and guarantors” Wikner adds.

Tjäreborg stresses that the bankruptcy of the Thomas Cook Group has no direct impact on Nordic customers.

“For over 60 years we have been creating holiday experiences and memories for our Nordic customers and we will continue to do so” says CEO Magnus Wikner.
