MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Some 14,700 Thomas Cook customers returned to the United Kingdom thanks to a repatriation program launched by the Government, the British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) reported.

"Yesterday (September 23), we operated 64 flights in our repatriation program bringing back 14,700 passengers," the agency published.

It was the first day of repatriations in an unprecedented program since World War II.
"Today, there will be 74 flights to bring back more than 16,500 passengers," the CAA added.
The bankruptcy of Thomas Cook, the world's second largest and oldest tour operator, left some 600,000 tourists stranded in various parts of the planet.

The company, which employed 22,000 people and whose assets include 105 aircraft and 200 hotels, entered into the mandatory liquidation process.
