Thomas Cook Sport, the sports travel brand of Thomas Cook, has acquired motor sport travel package provider Airtrack for an undisclosed sum.
Airtrack, which has operated for over 25 years, provides travel and hospitality for Formula 1 Grand Prix, MotoGP and Le Mans 24 Hours. It will continue to operate as usual from offices in Uxbridge, Middlesex and no other changes are planned.
Thomas Cook Sport managing director Danny Talbot said Aitrack was an “excellent company” with great leadership and reputation.
“With Lewis Hamilton being crowned the youngest World Champion in Formula 1, we are very excited to be able to offer sports travellers an even broader range of high profile sporting events and packages, including next season’s Formula 1, which will allow motor racing fans to benefit further from our expertise and heritage,” he said.
Airtrack managing director, Barry Bristow said: “This deal is great news for our customers. Airtrack is now part of the UK’s leading professional sports travel company. We’ve come a long way since 1981 but I am sure that our original premise of offering a better way of travelling to the event and to provide that little bit of ‘wow’ will continue.”
