Statement Update Re: Great Escapes Tour Operator

 
Ireland West Airport Knock greatly regrets that tour operator, Great Escapes, has ceased trading as and from, Tuesday, 26th August 2008. The Airport continues to liaise with the Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR), who has been extremely proactive and helpful since the announcement was made. Ireland West Airport Knock has been advised by the CAR that no Great Escapes’ passengers will be permitted to travel on any of the outbound flights (departing from Ireland West Knock) that were booked with Great Escapes, as these holidays are now invalid. Clients of Ronane Travel Ltd/Great Escapes can claim a refund from the Commission for Aviation Regulation.  Applications for refunds should be accompanied by documentary evidence in support of the claim. Applications forms are available to download from the website www.aviationreg.ie   Ireland West Airport continues to assist effected passengers as much as possible by providing them with the most up-to-date information which is received from the CAR.
