Spain: 'We have to be patient' - stranded Thomas Cook passengers at Mallorca airport

Spain, Mallorca
September 23, 2019 at 09:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hundreds of Thomas Cook holiday makers were left stranded at Mallorca airport on Monday after the company collapsed. Footage shows passengers waiting for travel updates with some of them being informed about the next steps by the British government officials.

'When we arrived at the airport nobody had our names on their list. So [we are] just concerned really. Are we on the system? Are we going to get home? So yeah, just a bit fed up but could be worse. I am going to put it into context: you know we are not trying to escape a war-torn country on an inflatable across the Mediterranean. So we just have to be patient and wait," said one passenger.

Over 150,000 people were left stranded in different countries as the 178-year-old company went bust over the weekend after failed talks to rescue the firm.
