Flight Centre has confirmed it will close some of its stores in England and Scotland owing to the effects of the coronavirus crisis.
The confirmation on Wednesday (1 July) comes after the business entered into consultation with staff in May over potential job cuts.
"As a result of the pandemic, the global travel industry came to a virtual standstill," said Flight Centre in a statement.
"We are seeing some green shots of growth, but these remain far lower than what we are used to.
"No one knows when significant travel demand will return, but we do know that when consumer and business travel does resume, it will look very different."
