Mexico tourism mostly unaffected by Thomas Cook closure: ministry

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – The collapse of British travel firm Thomas Cook will not have a “significant impact” on Mexico’s tourist industry as it only represents about 0.4% of the sector’s foreign income, the Mexican tourism ministry said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the ministry said it expected other travel firms to step in and absorb the British demand hitherto covered by Thomas Cook.

Thomas Cook last year generated income from tourist spending of $100 million for Mexico, or about 0.4% of the total, it said.
