Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia is a Danish charter airline headquartered in Copenhagen and part of the Thomas Cook Group. It operates flights to leisure destinations mainly in the Mediterranean and the canaries as well as some long-haul service from several bases in the Nordic Countries.[3]

History[edit]

The airline's roots trace back to two airlines: Conair of Scandinavia, owned by Danish Spies Group and Scanair, of the Swedish SLG - Scandinavian Leisure Group, when the two charter airlines were merged, and established on 1 January 1994 as Premiair. In 1994, SLG was acquired by Airtours.[4]

A Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia Airbus A330-300 set a record for the fastest ground speed across the Atlantic Ocean in January 2015 due to strong winds, when it flew from Cuba to Oslo at a ground speed of 1255.6 km/h.[5]
