The Insolvency Service’s enquiries into the insolvency of Monarch are ongoing and it continues to liaise with the administrators and the CAA to establish the facts surrounding the administration of Monarch Airlines Group.

The Department for Transport are continuing to work with several third parties, including relevant card providers and travel providers through which passengers have booked flights, to recover costs from the repatriation operation. We have begun the process of issuing invoices to third parties, and we will report back with more detail on cost recovery in due course.
