The Governorship of Mugla in Turkey has formed a crisis centre providing holidaymakers with information and support in terms of sourcing accommodation while on the ground in Turkey and returning home. Information desks are also operating at all major airports providing those affected with travel advice.The UK CAA, under its ATOL (Air Travel Organiser’s Licensing) scheme, is also making arrangements for customers abroad to travel home at the end of their holidays. The majority of flights from Turkey are expected to operate as planned. Goldtrail Travel collapsed on 16 July with an estimated 16,000 customers stranded overseas and a further 50,000 listed under future bookings.
