Three tour operators collapsed in few days

Custom Flights (seat-only)
Holiday Options
Budget Travel (Ireland)

have all ceased trading in the last few days.

I wonder which airlines/airports will suffer most from these failures in the charter holidays field.

I'm surprised at Budget Travel, considering they are part of Tui.

I believe the loss that Budget Travel had was 170k according to a newspaper here in Ireland. Can't remember where I read it. I'll post it up if I find it on the 'web'.

Flights for Budget travel was done by Primera Air. The B737 aircraft based in Dublin has been moved to another base, but sure there will be surplus crew at Primera Air now...
