Passengers have been left stranded after a transatlantic airline operating from London Stansted went into administration.
Danish leisure carrier Primera Air has announced it has exhausted all possible hopes of saving the company.
It's claimed travellers at Stansted were only told of the airline's demise as they were waiting for their flight.
Primera Air, which was owned by an Icelandic company, says it wasn't able to resolve financing issues which had been ongoing for some time.
This evening the Civil Aviation Authority encouraged passengers to use it's website for advice.
It says stranded passengers will have to make their own arrangements for getting home.
The collapse has come almost a year to the day after Luton based airline Monarch ceased operations on October 2nd 2017 when around 2,300 people lost their jobs.
