Thomas Cook collapse, ‘hard blow’ for Spanish tourism — Minister

The collapse of British tour operator Thomas Cook will have “a very negative impact” on Spain, the country’s tourism minister Maria Reyes Maroto says.

Maroto says she has been in contact with hotel chains to talk about strategies to deal with the fallout of the company’s liquidation.

“It’s a very hard blow to the islands” of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera, Iago Negueruela, the regional minister responsible for tourism, tells radio station SER.
