Budget airline Germania has filed for bankruptcy and cancelled all of its flights

This was the early flight from London Gatwick that was the first to land at Skiathos Airport at 11.30am.

The Berlin-based airline, which flew to destinations across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, transported more than four million passengers a year.

It blamed rising fuel prices and currency fluctuations as two factors.

"We ultimately failed to successfully complete our financing efforts to meet short-term liquidity needs," said managing director Karsten Balke.

"We very much regret that, as a consequence, we had no choice but to file for bankruptcy."

The company said that passengers who had booked flights as part of a package should contact their tour operator to make different arrangements, but added that people who booked directly with them were not entitled to a replacement flight.
