All future Monarch flights have been cancelled, affecting an estimated 300,000 bookings, and an estimated 110,000 holidaymakers who flew away with Monarch have been left stranded overseas.

In a statement, the CAA announced it was working with local government to secure a fleet of over 30 aircrafts that would be flown to over 30 airports to bring the passengers home at no extra cost.

The accountants KPMG announced at 4am on Monday that Monarch, Britain's longest-surviving airline brand, had been placed into administration and that all further flights from the United Kingdom had been cancelled and would not be rescheduled.

Monarch chief executive Andrew Swaffield set out the reasons behind the failure in a letter to staff he described as "the update I hoped I would never have to write". See our Holiday Rights guide for full help.

If you are already overseas you will find all the information you need about your new flight on this website.

Here is all you need to know about Monarch's demise. Details of this will be on the CAA's dedicated website and should be published at least 48 hours ahead of your original departure time.
