Low-priced carrier Primera Air shut down on Monday and canceled all its flights without giving passengers any notice.

Stansted said on Monday that travellers due to fly with the airline should not travel to the airport, from which Primera operated flights to Spain and the US.

Caroline Allen booked return flights to NY with the airline late last week so she and her husband James could visit friends in the USA to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Nearly a year after Monarch called in the administrators, Primera Air told passengers late yesterday that it was ceasing operations.

The airline told customers to visit its website for "further updates in the next few days" or to contact tour operators for further information.

"Kindly understand that the usual options for contacts (via email or phone) cannot be offered any longer", it added.

"Not being able to reach an agreement with our bank for a bridge financing, we had no other choice than filing for bankruptcy". The Times of London reported that some passengers were stuck sleeping at airports while they tried to make alternative arrangements.

The CAA has said it will not be stepping in to bring home United Kingdom passengers stranded overseas because Primera Air is not covered by its Atol protection scheme.

If you booked your flights through a tour operator or travel agent, contact them for more information. An estimated 60,000 people have been affected by the collapse, including flight crews who have also been stranded.

The airline, which had 15 planes in its fleet, started offering round-trip flights from London to cities in North America - including New York, Washington, DC, Boston, and Toronto - earlier this year.

The collapse comes exactly a year after Britain's Monarch Airlines went under after falling victim to intense competition for flights and a weaker pound.
