Monarch Airlines enters administration as brand buckles under pressure

Regulator the Civil Aviation Authority can deny an airline permission to do business if it believes it does not have enough cash to keep going

Britain's largest airline Monarch has collapsed its operation starting this Monday, cancelling 300,000 of its future bookings and leaving thousands of its travellers stranded overseas.

Thousands and thousands of others with future trips booked have also had their flight cancelled.

The British government had asked the CAA to help repatriate the stranded passengers and it said it was securing more than 30 aircraft to bring them back home.

- If you have yet to begin your journey, do not go to the airport: as of midnight 2 October, Monarch has ceased trading and will not operate any further flights.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has commissioned special flights to bring stranded Monarch customers back to the United Kingdom at no additional cost over the next two weeks.

"If you are away at the moment, your flight home is going to be provided by CAA. irrespective of insurance".

And it understood that Monarch passengers who were due to fly to the United Kingdom from Gibraltar will also be transferred to Malaga airport.

Monarch airlines are not the first airline to face administration this year.

Monarch, one of Britain's largest airlines, collapsed on Monday, leaving about 110,000 travelers stranded overseas amid the cancellation of flights scheduled in the coming weeks.




Luton-based Monarch Airlines has cancelled all of its flights after falling into administration.

Administrators KPMG said 1,858 of around 2,100 people employed across the airline and tour group had now been made redundant.

- If you have booked to travel to the United Kingdom and then to a non-UK country, you will be able to fly to the United Kingdom on a replacement flight but you will need to book new transport home.

Monarch, which has its headquarters at Luton Airport, is the biggest United Kingdom airline ever to cease trading.

CAA chief executive Andrew Haines said: 'We know that Monarch's decision to stop trading will be very distressing for all of its customers and employees.

Here's what to do if you've booked a flight or holiday with Monarch.

The regulator said everyone due to fly in the next fortnight would be brought back to the United Kingdom at no cost to them and that there was no need for them to cut short their stay.

He added: "Together with the Civil Aviation Authority, we will work around the clock to ensure Monarch passengers get the support they need".
