Rebalancing ATOL: Consultation on proposals to ensure a fair and proportionate financial protection scheme

30-Jun-2014

The CAA is consulting industry on proposals to rebalance the regulatory approach to the Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (ATOL) scheme.

This will extend the risk-based regulatory approach now well established with larger licence holders, help reduce the likelihood of consumers being affected by insolvency and provide further protection against calls on the Air Travel Trust (ATT).

The changes proposed have the potential to bring significant benefits to the ATOL scheme as a whole and the consumers that it protects. They will affect all ATOL holders – particularly Small Business ATOL holders - and firms applying for an ATOL for the first time.
