Travel agent Tjäreborg announced on Monday that it would re-start flights and holidays from Tuesday, after cancelling departures on Monday in the wake of parent company Thomas Cook’s collapse.

The firm says holidaymakers with departures on Tuesday should head to the airport as normal, and if there are any changes to the timetable passengers will be notified by text message.

Tjäreborg is part of Thomas Cook’s Nordic operations along with Ving, Spies, Globetrotter and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia.

A board meeting of the Nordic group on Monday decided to continue operations.

“Since we are an independent and profitable part of the business, we are already able to continue our operations with support from our banks, lenders and guarantors,” said Magnus Wikner, CEO of the Nordic concern.

On Monday holidaymakers were left stranded at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport after Thomas Cook collapsed on Sunday, with 2,900 tourists out of the country also left uncertain when they’d be able to return.
