AFTER MANY YEARS OF SERVICE, THE POPULAR AIRLINE HAS CORRUPTED...
Thomas Cook has left 600,000 people abroad stranded, including over 150,000 UK customers.
Thomas Cook failed to get the £200,000,000 it needed to stay open and have cancelled all pre-booked holidays. The collapse happened early this morning, on the 23rd of September.
One family of nine went to the airport after paying for the flight and all the insurance were given a flyer at the gates telling them that Thomas Cook had closed its doors, Thomas Cook lenders are disappointed that they could not find a way to keep Thomas Cook open.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has ceased all flights and cancelled all flights that have been booked, next Monday the CAA is launching a service which will refund all customers whose flights have been cancelled. The Government and the UK CAA are working around the clock to help all customers affected. Holidaymakers that had return flights in the next 2 weeks will be able to get a free flight home as close to their original return date as possible.
All customers will have their accommodation paid for by the Air Travel Trust Fund or Atol scheme. A million customers holidays that were pre-booked are now cancelled and some flight-only trips have been protected by the Atol scheme meaning they can finish their holiday and return home, customers who have not left home have been given a refund or replacement holiday.
