Nearly 1000 passengers due to fly from Glasgow to Spain this weekend will miss out after four flights were cancelled.

Around 920 people are thought to be affected by the cancellations of the FlyLolo flights from Glasgow Airport to Tenerife and Lanzarote on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Anyone due to travel on the cancelled flights have been advised not to travel to the airport and contact the operator directly for further details.

The four cancelled flights were the 8.30am GLA to Tenerife South on Friday, the 7am and 6.10am flights on the same route for Saturday and the 9am flight from Glasgow to Arrecife in Lanzarote on Sunday.

A Glasgow Airport spokesman said: "We were made aware tonight that flights planned by operator FlyLolo to Tenerife South and Arrecife in Lanzarote this weekend will not go ahead.

"We would ask all FlyLolo passengers affected not to travel to the airport and to contact the operator direct for further information."

Around 230 people were due to travel on each flight.

Kirsty Hammerton, who was due to fly out with her aunt on Friday, told STV News: "This has caused me so much stress and anxiety.

"Something I've been looking forward to all year. I know other families will feel the same.

"I hope maybe something will be done, I've lost my faith in going abroad now. With the recent collapse with Thomas Cook and now this, it's just so upsetting for everyone."

FlyLoLo chief executive Paul Dendle said: "We planned the flights, many over a year ago, the seats had sold well and we were into profit.

"The issue was the aircraft we thought we had a firm contract on was withdrawn.

"We have spent the last 17 days in trying to find an alternative, the issue was the cost in relation to rates we had agreed.

"We have been in discussions all day to secure a deal with another airline, we offered them equity in the company if they would supply the aircraft.

"We are a small company, licensed by the CAA with an ATOL to fly 25,000 seats.

"All clients' monies are fully protected and held in a CAA Trust and refunds will take ten working days.

"I have been working 18-hour days to try and resolve this issue, but alas it was impossible.

"I apologise for the disruption and disappointment caused, I sincerely feel for the affected clients."

He added that he is currently working to send notifications to those affected.
