London – The collapse of Thomas Cook has compelled UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to arrange for flights to convey 16,000 passengers back to the country.

According to Reuters, the CAA said over 150 Thomas Cook crew has been airlifted alongside 30% of the total passengers within the first three days of the exercise.

The CAA has said that this action would continue until October 6 as they have planned for a total of more than 1,000 flights to join the project.

It could be recalled that Thomas Cook which started its operation in 19 June 2007 has entered liquidation in 23 September 2019.
