International News from World: Thomas Cook customers who had booked holidays with the collapsed travel firm can now claim for a refund online. About 800,000 people had been due to take trips with the firm in the coming months, according to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which is handling the refund process.
It will take 60 days for people to get their money back, the CAA said. The announcement came as the final flight bringing holidaymakers back by emergency repatriation was due to land.
The few remaining passengers who did not return on a CAA-organised flight will have to make their own plans, although those covered by the Air Travel Organiser’s Licence scheme (Atol) will be refunded.
The majority of Thomas Cook holidays were packages and are Atol protected.
