Deathwatch: Travel firm Kiss Flights puckering up no more

17 August 2010

deathwatch More potentially bad news for holidaymakers - another week has seen the collapse of another budget travel firm, with as many as 70,000 travellers affected by the implosion of Kiss Flights, part of London-based company Flight Options which ceased trading late on Tuesday.

Kiss_Flights_open_new_route_to_Tenerife_xlargeKiss has approximately 13,000 customers overseas at the moment with another 60,000 due to travel in the future. The collapse of the company follows in the footsteps of Sun4U and Goldtrail, both of which went tits-up (relax, it’s an industry-recognised term) in the past month.

But it could be worse - the Civil Aviation Authority have said that the ‘vast majority’ of people who held future bookings with Kiss would received refunds, i.e those whose bookings were ATOL-protected. Anyone due to travel from the UK before 6pm on Wednesday is guaranteed a flight there and back while those currently abroad are guaranteed to get home again.

Kiss Flights are the unlucky 13th UK travel company to collapse this year, and they probably won’t be the last.
