Dart Group expects to exceed profit view on Thomas Cook liquidation

Oct 11 (Reuters) - Dart Group, the owner of British airline and tour operator Jet2, said it had seen stronger demand for some of its products since Thomas Cook entered into compulsory liquidation last month, and expects full-year pretax profit to exceed market expectations.

The company said on Friday it had received good levels of later season bookings in its leisure travel business, with strong demand for its Flight-Only offering and Package Holiday products.
