HistoryEdit

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]
