Tunisia specialist Just Sunshine is to protect existing bookings with Wings Abroad, which suspended all UK operations after failing to find a buyer earlier this month.
The operator has stepped in to protect nearly 100 holidaymakers who had booked May and June holidays with Turkey specialist Wings Abroad, which has not traded since failing to renew its Atol licence at the end of March.
Wings Abroad owner Tevfik Bagci decided to suspend operations to focus on his other business interests after challenging trading conditions in the UK and the failure to find a new buyer. One potential buyer withdrew its offer at the last minute. Bagci has pledged to review the prospects of restarting the business later this year.
Just Sunshine introduced its first Turkey programme for 2012, with more than 300 properties in 13 Turkish resorts.
Former Wings Abroad consulting marketing manager Chris Mansell, who now has a similar role at Just Sunshine, said: “A separate brochure has been produced and distributed demonstrating the confidence the company has in the future potential of Turkey. We are very pleased to be able to help, particularly in our first year featuring Turkey.”
Flights for Wings Abroad customers will operate from their pre-booked airports with all accommodation provided as originally booked.
