All Saga guests now repatriated following ash chaos

Saga Holidays has said it has managed to repatriate all customers to the UK after the flight chaos caused by the volcanic ash cloud.Around 5,000 of the tour operator’s customers were affected by the disruption to UK airspace and around 2,000 people had their overseas holiday extended. Of these all bar a handful have returned to the UK with the last holiday makers returning from Fiji after the May Day Bank Holiday.To ensure all passengers had minimum disruption to their holidays, Saga provided the majority of passengers with accommodation in the same hotel rather than being moved into hotels the airlines provided. Some holiday-makers in Spain were picked up by the cruise-ship Saga Ruby for a leisurely cruise back to Southampton.
