The tour operator is in the Federal Registry of Tour Operators of the Russian Federation in the field of international outbound and domestic tourism. The management of Tour Operator BG LLC, the founders of which are former owners of tour operator Biblio-Globus, guarantee the implementation of all operational activities of the company. Bankruptcy of a British tour operator will not affect the activities of Tour Operator BG LLC, since the activities of this legal entity in the formation of tourism products in accordance with Russian legislation in the field of tourism are outside the influence of Thomas Cook. Incoming companies of the Russian tour operator work as usual for clients as in Russia and abroad. All contracts for accommodation, transportation have been carried out, the flight program is controlled only by partners of Tour Operator BG within the framework of concluded transportation agreements".
