Around 2,400 passengers are estimated to have been affected by the cancellation of Thomas Cook flights at Glasgow Airport after the tour operator collapsed.
Holidaymakers told of their concerns about getting home to Scotland, while those booked on outbound trips faced disappointment.
The last of the firm’s flights to arrive in the city landed at 5.50am from Orlando in Florida, with seven inbound and seven outbound services grounded on Monday.
Thomas Cook ceased trading in the early hours of Monday morning after failing to secure a last-ditch rescue deal.
Glasgow Airport estimates around 2,400 passengers have been hit by the 178-year-old company’s closure.
An estimated 150,000 tourists are being brought back to the UK by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in a flight programme costing £100 million.
The first repatriation flights from Zante and Menorca arrived back in Glasgow Airport on Monday afternoon.
Tommy Turner, a 60-year-old labourer from Coatbridge, was one of those flown back from the Greek hotspot.
He said: “It was a bit hectic. There was a mix up with the tickets when we were at the airport.
“My wife was still here (in Coatbridge) and she went to try and go to the Thomas Cook shop this morning to see what was happening, but it was boarded up.
“The Thomas Cook girls in Greece said that they didn’t have jobs anymore.”
Jackie McDonald, 53, from Motherwell, found out about the fate of the company and the cancellation of her flight when she was waiting for her airport transfer.
She said: “The buses were all cancelled and they had to get taxis for everyone.
“The last few days we couldn’t get a hold of the Thomas Cook reps.
“I was quite shocked that we hadn’t been told. I thought they would say to people beforehand.
“But we ended up with an American airline on the way back, so it was fine.”
Dot Mitchell, from Alloa, who was also coming back from Zante, said: “It was a bit stressful because there was a mix up at the airport, but they sorted it out and it was all right.
“The staff were just disappointed, you could see that in them when we were at the airport.”
Jim Hatton, 61, feared he would be stuck in Menorca due to the collapse of Thomas Cook.
The retired chartered engineer from Helensburgh in Argyll and Bute was concerned as he had limited heart medication with him.
He said: “My wife and I have mobility problems and take a lot of meds for pain relief and other conditions.
“We made provision for a couple of days extra but if we had been delayed longer some vital heart medication I take for an arrhythmia would have run out.
“We had plans to visit a doctor locally to try to get a prescription but we were told it would be OK.”
He added: “Last night was sleepless, I was watching news feeds constantly.”
Glasgow Airport told passengers who were meant to be flying with the operator not to travel to the terminal.
All future Thomas Cook bookings have been cancelled, affecting around one million people.
The Scottish Government has offered its support to company staff.
Transport Secretary Michael Matheson said: “This will be a very worrying time for employees in Scotland, and Scottish staff based overseas, and we recognise these job losses will have a disproportionate impact on women.
“We have already made the offer of support for affected employees in Scotland through our Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) initiative.”
Thomas Cook chief executive Peter Fankhauser said his company had “worked exhaustively” to salvage a rescue package and apologised to those impacted.
Atol provides protection to customers on package holidays when travel firms collapse, although passengers who made flight-only bookings with Thomas Cook are also being brought home at no extra charge.
The firm’s package holiday customers will have the cost of their accommodation covered by Atol.
Citizens Advice Scotland chief executive Derek Mitchell said: “The collapse of Thomas Cook is a horrible situation for staff and we would like to reassure people stranded abroad or with a holiday booked that their rights are protected.
“We would also urge them to show patience with staff.
“Package holidays are covered by the Atol scheme so people will be able to get home, or the cost of a future holiday they have booked will be refunded.”
