Avro is alerting agents to additional flights being added to its programme in the wake of the Kiss failure.

The seat-only operator is circulating full details of its additional flights as well as its current programme for this summer, winter and next summer to its travel agent partners.

Michael Vinales, Avro’s managing director, said: “We realise how difficult it will be for agents to secure alternative travel arrangements for their customers in what has to be the most heavily booked period of the year.

“We operate to all the destinations most acutely affected and as ever we are here to support travel agents and our retail partners. The quicker we move to make this process as smooth as possible for agents, the more chance we have of rebuilding confidence in our sector.

“Our heritage in the flight only market puts us in the best position to  guarantee security and consumer protection to our customers and we will readily consider any suggestions from our retail partners regarding what is needed going forward in terms of flight capacity.”

Avro offers flights on all routes previously offered by Kiss to the following destinations: Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, Dalaman, Bodrum and Antalya in Turkey, Zante, Rhodes, Kos, Skiathos, Heraklion Chania, Corfu, Kefalonia and Preveza in Greece, Sharm el Sheikh and Luxor in Egypt and Bulgaria.
