A special flight to rescue British holidaymakers stuck in The Bahamas landed back in the UK on Wednesday.

The British Airways Boeing 777 was laid on from Nassau as part of the government’s £75 million global repatriation efforts.

But in travel advice for The Bahamas, the Foreign Office said: “Further special flights of this kind are not planned.

“The British High Commission Nassau is in contact with airlines, the Bahamian authorities and other governments to make sure commercial options for returning to the UK are available as soon as possible.”

Captain Anna Croft, senior first officers Rob Taylor and Charlie Morgan along with cabin crew flew the Britons back to Heathrow.
