A total of 19 people lost their job at 365 Tickets as it was forced to shut due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the travel and leisure sectors.

The Jersey-registered company, which traded under the names of 365 Global Tickets Limited and 365 Tickets International Limited, was founded in 1997 and sold tickets to attractions around the world.

CVR Global, which has been appointed to help wind up the firm, said in a statement: "The companies have a 20-year history but, like many others in the sector, have seen their business wiped out almost instantly by the coronavirus pandemic.

"The 19 staff – 17 in Jersey and two in the United Kingdom – have sadly lost their jobs," it added.
