Thomas Cook: Remaining 4,800 passengers set for return

Flights repatriating the remaining 4,800 Thomas Cook holidaymakers are due to take off on Sunday as the return of almost 150,000 people nears its end. The final passengers are due to land in Manchester early on Monday on a flight from Orlando, in the US. Matterhorn involved more than 700 flights over two weeks, the CAA said. Richard Moriarty, chief executive at CAA, said: "In the first 13 days we have made arrangements for around 140,000 passengers to return to the UK and we are pleased that 94% of holidaymakers have arrived home on the day of their original departure." Mr Moriarty said any traveller not covered by Atol and who wished to return early might still find seats on Sunday's remaining flights. The return of the remaining passengers will bring to an end the biggest-ever peacetime repatriation.
