  • Flight replacements organised by the CAA for passengers affected by Monarch's cease of service ends on 15 October

The Civil Aviation Authority's programme to rescue stranded Monarch passengers is due to be completed on Sunday. Andrew Haines, Chief Executive of the CAA, said on Wednesday:

“Our two week flying programme to bring home 110,000 people from across the Mediterranean and beyond remains on course, however, like other airlines, some flights experienced significant disruption due to the French air traffic control strike. While this disruption was totally outside of our control, I can reassure passengers that we are doing everything within our power to deliver an efficient service.

The CAA continues to work around the clock, in conjunction with the Government, to deliver our replacement flying programme.”

The CAA website contains information to assist those due to fly back to the UK after Sunday.
