Monarch Passengers Advised Not To Travel To Malaga Airport

Thousands of passengers have been stranded on the Costa Del Sol since the the sudden closure of Monarch airlines.  The British government is now working on a repatriation plan, but is asking travellers not to travel to airports without confirmation of their replacement flights.

110,000 Passengers To Be Returned Home

Transport secretary in the UK Chris Grayling says that this is the biggest peacetime repatriation to ever be organised.  “This is a hugely distressing situation for British holidaymakers abroad — and my first priority is to help them get back to the UK. That is why I have immediately ordered the country’s biggest ever peacetime repatriation to fly about 110,000 passengers who could otherwise have been left stranded abroad”

Repatriation flights are being offered to everyone who has booked with Monarch.  If you are currently stranded in Spain, a website has been set up to assist with finding replacement flights.  Please click here.  Passengers will be flown home as close as possible to their original flight times, though delays are already building.  If you cannot be returned to the airport you expected to fly to, coaches will be provided to complete your journey.

Foreign Office staff will be available at Malaga airport to assist passengers with specific needs, especially those with medical concerns.

Claiming Costs For Extra Accomodation

Passengers with ATOL protection will be entitled to reasonable accommodation and subsistence costs if they are delayed beyond their original departure date. Those without ATOL protection may be able to claim from card providers or insurers.

Holidays Already Booked With Monarch

If you are due to travel with Monarch in the future, check the dedicated website or contact your travel agent if you booked with one. They will be able to advise on whether you can change your holiday booking or are entitled to a refund or compensation. If you are not covered by the ATOL scheme, you should also contact your credit card company or travel insurer.
