Traveland collapse may hit customers

Traveland, the former Ansett travel agency, has gone into administration again, endangering the Christmas holiday arrangements of many customers.

The company's administrators said that Traveland's 270 franchises were not affected at this stage by the voluntary administration.

They told the Australian Financial Review: “We are also aware of the difficult situation in which this places customers. We ask them to be patient as we work through the issues.” The administrators expect an outcome within 28 days.

Traveland was placed in administration when Ansett collapsed in September before being resurrected by new owner Internova.
