Official Statement from the CAA
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.
Customers already abroad
If you are currently abroad and due to return to the UK on or before 15 October 2017 arrangements are being made 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.
They will prioritise vulnerable passengers, including unaccompanied minors, and make sure that family groups travel on the same flights.
Customers yet to travel out of the UK
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.
