Monarch officially went into administration at 4am this morning.
This is from Sky news.
Thousands of passengers have had their holiday plans thrown into turmoil after Britain’s fifth biggest airline collapsed into administration.
The collapse will mean 110,000 travellers stranded abroad are to be brought home in an operation organised by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which is chartering more than 30 aircraft over the next fortnight.
Transport Secretary Chris Grayling described it as “the country’s biggest ever peacetime repatriation”.
Others who have yet to travel but have bought flights with the airline will see their holiday plans scrapped – with 300,000 future bookings cancelled.
They have been advised not to travel to airports, and to check Monarch’s website for information.
Customers yet to travel have been told they may be able to claim a refund through their credit and debit card provider – and some, if they are ATOL protected, if they booked through another travel firm.
A website and helpline have been set up if your are affected.
passengers needing advice should visit monarch.caa.co.uk, or call the helpline on 0300 303 2800 if calling from the UK or +44 1753 330330 from abroad
