Kiss Flights collapses leaving 13,000 passengers overseas

| August 18, 2010 | 0 Comments

Approximately 13,000 British holidaymakers are stranded abroad after budget travel firm Kiss Flights has collapsed.

The firm, which operated flights to Greece, Egypt, Turkey and the Canary Islands, is the latest in a long line of travel firms that have recently gone bust.

The collapse has meant the travel plans of 60,000 Britons are ruined during peak season. However, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the majority would receive refunds.

The CAA has announced customers with flights leaving the UK before 6pm today have been told their trips will operate as planned.

The company is owned by Flight Options, which has ceased trading, and the news comes just a week after travel company Sun4u collapsed.

Furthermore, tour operator Goldtrail Holidays collapsed last month.

The collapse of the travel firms has been blamed on the recession, together with the Icelandic volcano ash cloud which disrupted European air travel in April and May this year.
