"This outcome has been facilitated by the collaborative approach of Thomas Cook's commercial partners at UK airports and the support of both internal and external slot co-ordinators," the Official Receiver added.

It comes less than two months since Thomas Cook entered administration.

Earlier this month, they sold off the Thomas Cook brand name to Chinese company Fosun for £11 million. Fosun said it still believes in the brand value of Thomas Cook.

In October, Sunderland-based Hays Travel paid £6 million to buy Thomas Cook's 555 high street stores, promising to keep many of the jobs.
