Online air ticket firm E-Clear goes into administration

A HIGH Court judge granted an administration order today against E-Clear, the company which dealt with the online ticket sales of collapsed travel firm Globespan.

Mr Justice Vos, who gave the ruling at a hearing in London, heard that E-Clear consented to the move.

The action against E-Clear was brought by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), which was appointed administrator of Edinburgh-based Globespan on 16 December.

An estimated 3,400 holidaymakers were left stranded in Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Egypt when Globespan went into administration.

The case reached the High Court last week but after a brief hearing was adjourned until today.

The latest proceedings were set for more than a day, but ended after less than an hour.

E-Clear was not represented by counsel, but its "consent" to the administration order was notified to the court by solicitors.

E-Clear is said to owe 35 million to the collapsed travel firm.
