Bravo boss: “Everyone will get home”

The Herning-based tour operator says Primera Air’s collapse is causing it significant challenges.

As previously reported, the bankrupt Primera Air’s passengers and holidaymakers are stranded in quite a number of places, on both sides of the Atlantic, but also in the airline’s Mediterranean destinations such as Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Las Palmas and Chania in Crete.

The Danish tour operator Bravo Tours has been using the predominantly charter carrier for most of its holidays, as it is within the same Primera Travel Group of companies.

While the airlines Norwegian and Ryanair are offering “rescue fares” to stranded passengers, the Herning-based operator has admitted to the Danish tabloid newspaper BT that the airline’s financial crash is causing it significant challenges, delays and chaotic days, for the firm and for its customers.

“We’re major clients of Primera Air and we have a lot of customers travelling with them at the moment,” said Bravo’s administrative director Peder Hornshøj.

There has been some media speculation that in recent weeks large amounts of finances were transferred between the companies in Primera Travel Group in an effort to sustain the airline.

Flight solutions
The company would normally have between 400 and 700 customers daily, who will now be affected in one way or another by the bankruptcy.

But Bravo promises that nobody will be forgotten – including any of the tour operator’s customers who have found themselves seemingly stuck abroad.

“Everyone will get home – not as planned, but almost. There are solutions to all problems. Some customers might have to take another flight home and have a slightly longer trip, but it won’t make a difference to their number of travelling days,” Hornshøj assured.
