Service gap created by Flyglobespan collapse gets takers

Tiffany Phillips

Customers who had booked a flight with budget carrier Flyglobespan could still travel following the addition of further flights at Glasgow Airport.

Flyglobespan went through bankruptcy a week ago, stranding thousands of passengers both abroad and in the UK.

But rival carriers including Thomson, Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic have all announced that they are ready to increase their respective capacity out of Glasgow international airport.

This announcement means that several customers who had seen their Christmas travel plans being dashed by the collapse of Flyglobespan may still find a getaway in time for the December 25 as they try to rebook a flight.

Glasgow Airport managing director Amanda McMillan said the facility’s first priority was to assist returning travellers from their holidays, adding that the capacity increase out of the Scottish city would allow optional travel possibilities to passengers which would other wise feel stranded.

Miss McMillan said that they were descent progress thanks to the further capacity offer of three of UK’s largest carriers having confirmed huge increases in seating from Glasgow International airport for immediately this winter and next summer as well.

Furthermore, the bad snowstorms experienced in the UK this week has prompted the airport to ask all passengers who are due to fly to confirm with their airline to see if their plans have been changed.

Heavy snow and freezing wintery conditions have greatly affected the UK as well as a large part of the Europe this week, causing transit chaos and several flight cancellations.
