The airline selected by the tour operator that assembled the package you bought. They only offer vacations by other tour operators for now.

"Other"? But not TUI I guess? Which airlines are mainly/usually used by those "other" package tour operators? Or is it really a big blend of all companies?

I don't know about all commercial deals between tour operators and airlines. One tour operator can have dozens of them depending on the number of destinations selected. I suggest you try them all and tell us about the result of your study. Or is there someone of the EX Thomas Cook shop employees that has a few free hours/days to save PttU some time?

Pegase, which was part of Thomas Cook Belgium and thus flying essentially with Brussels Airlines, has now decided to also fly with TUI fly Belgium. Bad news for SN, although the impact should be rather limited since Pegase is an exclusive luxury brand.

Thomas Cook (UK) is set to be relaunched by new owner Fosun Tourism Group (China) in the first half of 2020. Fosun plans to use the tour operator’s brand on a travel platform targeting European customers.

Wamos Travel Belgium, who took over 62 travel agencies (Neckermann and/or Thomas Cook Travel Shop) has obtained an insolvency-insurance-police from Amlin. They are now allowed to sell trips (*) and recieve payments.

(*) By extreme exception, they were already allowed by the Belgian FOD Economie / SPF Economie to do so, but only with direct payment by the clients to the touroperators.
