Madhavan Menon, Executive Chairman, Thomas Cook (India) Limited, said, “The Thomas Cook India Group delivered another strong performance – driven by buoyancy in consumer demand for travel which is no longer seasonal. This is reflected in the McKinsey Report that forecasts doubling of overall consumption by 2030. Backed by high travel propensity, the report also highlights India’s growth potential – from 13 million outbound trips in 2022 to 80-90 million in 2040. The proposed policy around money changing that has been circulated by RBI is likely to bring consolidation in the industry. Additionally, the proposition to permit AD II to undertake trade transactions up to a specified limit will enable more participation and better access to customers. The focus across the Group will remain firmly on margins, productivity enhancement via technology and benefits of cost re-engineering, while ensuring best-in-industry customer experience.”
