CAA flies back first 12000 passengers stranded by Monarch collapse

Additionally, the flights of over 750,000 people were suddenly cancelled due to Monarch Airlines' announcement.

Britain's Civil Aviation Authority said that on Monday it operated around 60 flights to bring back almost 12,000 customers, with a similar number of passengers due to be brought back on Tuesday.

The CAA has secured a fleet of more than 30 aircraft, including many Airbus A320s from Qatar Airways, to fly to more than 30 airports that Monarch served to bring back stranded customers. You can also message the Guardian on WhatsApp by adding the contact +44 (0) 7867825056.

Blair Nimmo, Jim Tucker and Mike Pink from liability partnership KPMG were appointed joint administrators to Monarch Airlines Limited on Monday, October 2.

CAA chief executive Andrew Haines said Monarch is the "biggest United Kingdom airline ever to cease trading" and it had been asked by the government to support customers affected. The CAA is asking all Monarch customers to check the website monarch.caa.co.uk for details.

Early this morning authorities announced that the first flight to bring home 165 passengers from Ibiza had landed at Gatwick, and subsequently a second CAA flight landed at Birmingham bringing home more passengers from Ibiza.

This situation has not come out of the blue; the company has been struggling financially for some time and the chief executive of the Civil Aviation Authority Andrew Haines has revealed that Monarch notified his organisation a month ago that they were in trouble. As of today all future flights and holidays with Monarch are cancelled.

More than 30 aircraft will bring more than 110,000 holidaymakers back to Britain in the country's largest peacetime repatriation operation following the collapse of low-priced airline Monarch, the government said.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: "This is a hugely distressing situation for British holidaymakers overseas and my first priority is to help them get back to the UK".

"This is an unprecedented response to an unprecedented situation".

The CAA said on Twitter: "Some disruption is inevitable in these extraordinary circumstances; please bear with us as we do our very best to help".

For anyone who booked flights with Monarch after the 15th December a year ago, the company was not protected by the ATOL scheme, meaning customers have no grounds to claim their money back through the airline or CAA.

These flights will be free for passengers who were booked to fly Monarch.
