and what does it state in that article that makes any inclination towards Thomson taking over Jet 2? There certainly has been no rumours in the travel trade regarding it. Simply Jet 2 are buying two 757s which Thomson are withdrawing to increase their fleet.

Also in todays travel market which is getting harder and harder for companies to sell in, they are increasing their product range to include a good product.

Jet 2 are expanding at most airports and are opening another new base next year.

Doesnt make sense.

Thomson and First Choice travel agencies are to sell Jet 2 Holidays. It's nothing more than that. They sell holidays from most tour operators. Nothing out of the ordinary

A normal business strategy is to buy up and close down / integrate competitors.

I imagine however that the EU and UK competition authorities would take more than a passing look at such a proposal, even though Jet2 holidays are pretty small fry in the scheme of things.
