The government is organising replacement flights for passengers who are already abroad, while flights departing from the UK will be cancelled.

UK low-cost carrier Monarch Airlines has declared bankruptcy and cancelled all its flights causing an unprecedented situation for the government as more than 110,000 people are left stranded overseas.

The carrier had five services a week connecting Zagreb and the UK (Gatwick and Manchester).

The government and the CAA are currently organising replacement flights for people who are already abroad, and all Monarch flights departing from the UK will be cancelled. According to CNN Money report on October 2, 2017, more than 30 flights are being organised to fly Monarch passengers back, and some 300,000 future bookings have been cancelled.

The replacement flights will not cost extra for the passengers if their flight back is on or before October 15. If you are currently abroad and plan to return before that date, you can find out more here, and if your return flight was supposed to happen later, read more here.
