ABTA is restarting its financial protection focus groups following the Civil Aviation Authority’s latest call for information on ATOL reform.

As part of its process ABTA will be reconvening its focus groups on financial protection among representatives from the travel industry and the main financial services sectors, including banks, merchant acquirers, bond obligors and financial failure insurance providers.

The ABTA-led groups first met last summer to exchange views on current financial protection arrangements and the existing proposed options under the CAA’s ATOL Reform consultation.

ABTA Chief Executive Mark Tanzer said: “We’re pleased to see the CAA publish this update on ATOL reform.

“It has been much anticipated and today’s development is the next step in reaching clarity about future regulations and requirements.

“We’ll be consulting with our members to get their insight, and also bringing together representatives from the wider financial protection landscape in February.

“We’d really encourage members to engage with our process so that we can provide an informed and constructive response to influence the CAA’s decisions.”
