The CAA estimates that approximately 13,000 people are currently overseas having travelled with Kiss. All of these people will be able to complete their holiday and return to the UK as their holidays are protected by ATOL.

The BBC reports that the CAA is also putting arrangements in place to allow people to travel out on their holidays in the next 24 hours.

Another 60,000 people that have bookings with Kiss will be able to claim a full refund for the ATOL protected parts of the holiday from the CAA.

What should I do if I’ve booked with Kiss Flights?

If you are abroad and experiencing difficulties, call the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on 0044 161 444 5811 for the latest information.

If your flight is due to leave the UK before 1800 BST on Wednesday 18 August, you should go to the airport and check in as normal as these flights will go ahead as planned.

If your flight is due to leave after 1800 BST on Wednesday 18 August, do not travel. Instead you will need to make a claim for a refund from the CAA.

Those with forward bookings requiring general advice about refunds under the ATOL scheme should go to the CAA website or can contact the CAA on 0844 571 7262.

The CAA says all travellers currently overseas will be repatriated.
