The repatriation of the 50,000 tourists stranded at 13 different locations in Greece following the bankruptcy of travel agency Thomas Cook will be completed by the beginning of October, Deputy Tourism Minister Manolis Konsolas said on Monday.

Konsolas added that some 6,331 tourists at South Aegean islands have already been returned to their home countries, soon to be followed by the remaining 958.

Thomas Cook said it had been forced to seek insolvency to extricate itself from its UK parent company’s “financial tie-ups and related liabilities”.

Under EU package holiday rules, tourists are covered financially from a company’s insolvency as well as have the right to repatriation.
