Moving tributes have been left outside Thomas Cook in Manchester following the collapse of the tour operator.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has repatriated nearly 15,000 Thomas Cook customers following the travel company's collapse.
CAA completed 64 flights on the first day of the operation, bringing 14,700 people back to the UK.
It is expected to bring back 16,800 people on 74 flights on Tuesday.
Thomas Cook customers are reminded to check thomascook.caa.co.uk for further information.
Some Thomas Cook customers left cards, notes and flowers outside one store to express their sorrow at the closure of the travel giant.
One message to staff said they hoped they managed to find their feet following the loss of 9,000 jobs.
One simply said "thank you for the service."
While another just said "Rest in peace Thomas Cook."
