The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has completed the March 2011 renewal of Air Travel Organisers’ Licences (ATOL). During the renewal, 976 firms applied to renew their licenses. Of these, 963 received decisions from the CAA on their applications. By 1 April 949 had renewed their licences.
Andy Cohen, Head of ATOL Licensing said:
“A highlight to this renewal period is that of the 976 companies who applied to the CAA for an ATOL licence renewal, only 27 companies failed in their application: this is the lowest failure rate we have seen to date.
“This low rate is testament to the strong working relationships we have with the travel industry and we thank them for their continual co-operation. It also demonstrates the overall resilience of the travel industry, which, over the past 18 months, has faced some very difficult trading conditions. We look forward to continuing to work together, in particular as the Government brings forward proposals to reform ATOL.”
