Travellers Caught By Firm’s Collapse

The demise of an airline flying out of Humberside Airport has disrupted the holidays of North Lincolnshire tourists.

Around 100 holiday bookings to Spain with Thomson and Thomas Cook are likely to be affected.

Futura Airlines flew three flights a week from Humberside Airport before it collapsed on Monday.

Althams Travel Services, in Brigg, said at least two of its customers were being transferred to a different airport in Spain.

Many small independent travel agents book package holidays with the two travel giants.

Both companies said their customers would be booked on to different flights and may not experience any delay.

Futura Airlines, which is based in Spain, flies more than 30 aircraft. A statement from the company blamed the rising cost of fuel for its collapse.
