FiLiz Tours, which has been active on the Polish market since 2004, announced that it had suspended all operations on Tuesday on the firm's official web site.
“The management board apologizes to all customers for any inconveniences and unfulfilled dreams resulting from the bankruptcy,” the statement declared.
At least two customers may have to be flown back from Turkey this week as a result of the collapse.
It is unclear at present whether the company has filed an official application declaring its bankruptcy. If not, flying the stranded customers back to Poland will be problematic in terms of accessing emergency funds.
It also remains unclear whether clients who had been due to take part in trips organised by the company will be able to recoup any of their money.
Although Filiz Tours specialised in trips to Turkey, it also offered holidays in Germany, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary and Slovakia. (nh)
