130,000 still stranded as Thomas Cook repatriations continue
More than 130,000 UK tourists were still awaiting repatriation on Tuesday following the collapse of the UK travel company Thomas Cook as the repercussions of its failure spread worldwide. The Civil Aviation Authority, which is responsible for returning British holidaymakers, said on Tuesday that it had returned 14,700 passengers in the first day following the liquidation of Thomas Cook. A total of 500,000 travellers were estimated to be away on Thomas Cook holidays over the weekend with tourists stranded as far away as Las Vegas and the Caribbean. On Monday, Tunisia's tourism minister Rene Trabelsi said that Tunisian hotels were owed about €60m by Thomas Cook for guest stays during July and August. Travel companies such as Virgin, easyJet and National Rail all published job adverts targeted at Thomas Cook staff on Monday.
