Hundreds Stranded on Greek Islands after Danish Carrier Declares Bankruptcy

Primera Air, a Danish leisure airline with flight services from Northern Europe to more than 40 destinations in the Mediterranean, Middle East, and North America, declared bankruptcy on Monday, leaving hundreds of tourists stranded on the Greek islands without knowing how they will get back to their home countries.

More than 400 passengers were left at the Chania Airport on Crete and dozens more on the island of Zakynthos (Zante).

Primera Air also provided services in Greece to Athens, the islands of Rhodes and Kos, and the Peloponnese region. It is not clear whether the airlines had scheduled flights to these destinations on the day it declared bankruptcy.
