Monarch Airlines hat Insolvenz angemeldet und den Flugbetrieb eingestellt …

Derzeit ist in Europa großes Sterben der Airlines. Heute hat Monarch Airlines Insolvenz angemeldet und den Flugbetrieb eingestellt:

Auf der Homepage von Monarch findet man nur mehr folgenden Disclaimer:

“Monarch has confirmed that the following companies have ceased trading and now entered administration:
+ Monarch Airlines Ltd
+ Monarch Holidays Ltd (ATOL Number 2275)
+ First Aviation Ltd (ATOL Number 4888) previously trading as Monarch Airlines
+ Avro Ltd (ATOL Number 1939)
+ Somewhere2stay Ltd
As a result, we are sorry to inform you that, as of 2 October 2017, all future holidays and flights provided by these companies have been cancelled and are no longer operating.
This is an unprecedented situation and because there are up to 110,000 passengers abroad, the UK Government has asked the CAA to coordinate flights back to the UK for all Monarch customers currently overseas. These new flights will be at no extra cost to you.”

Passagiere für zukünftige Flüge sollen gar nicht mehr zum Airport kommen:

“We are sorry to inform you that all future holidays and flights booked with Monarch are now cancelled as of 2 October 2017.
If you are booked on a Monarch Airlines flight, please do not go to your UK airport, as your flight will not be operating.”

Passagiere die gerade mit Monarch unterwegs sind, sollen zurückgeholt werden:

“If you are currently abroad and due to return to the UK on or before 15 October 2017 we are making arrangements for you to return home to the UK on a new flight, at the end of your holiday. These new flights will be at no extra cost to you.
We will of course prioritise vulnerable passengers, including unaccompanied minors, and make sure that family groups travel on the same flights.”

Auf der Page von Monarch Airlines gibt es seitenweise Beschreibungen der geplanten Rückflüge und Umbuchungen dafür.
