Monarch Airlines – receiving your protective award payment

We are processing protective award payments made by the Employment Tribunal to former employees of the airline.


On 24 April 2019 the Employment Tribunal made a protective award to former employees of Monarch Airlines Limited to recompense them for the failure to consult about the potential for the redundancies following the business being put into administration.

The Insolvency Service has received a copy of the protective award and we are processing the payments that are due to eligible former employees of the airline.

Am I covered by the protective award?

The protective award covers employees who worked from, or were based at, one of these sites:

  • Leeds Bradford Airport
  • Birmingham Airport
  • Manchester Airport
  • Luton Airport
  • Gatwick Airport

What do I need to do?

You don’t need to take any further action just now. If you’re eligible for a Protective Award payment we aim to pay this within 12 weeks. However, we may contact you before this time if we need further information.
