The Minister for Aviation, Maritime and Security wrote to the Civil Aviation Authority about the enforcement options available for maintaining compliance with the ATOL scheme.



This letter to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) confirms the Department for Transport’s intention to consider broadening the enforcement toolkit for the air travel organisers’ licencing (ATOL) scheme, including the introduction of civil sanction powers.

The intention to review the CAA’s powers for the ATOL scheme was also confirmed in the Department for Business and Trade’s announcement on reforms to package holidays.

See the CAA website for more information on the ATOL scheme.
