Given the scale and market presence of the existing global OTA duopoly, there are precious few contenders that would dare to challenge them.  

However Fosum, with its deep pockets, outstanding e-commerce experience and deep vertical integration into the travel sector, could be just the company to challenge the status-quo.  

By leveraging Thomas Cook's incredible brand recognition, and strategically positioning itself as meaningfully different to the existing online players, it has the potential to define its own space in the online marketplace.  

Note the time and the date - we could be witnessing the (re)birth of the third major online global travel brand.
