The article reports on tour operators responding after Great Britain Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) report has revealed decline in passenger numbers. Charter airlines have refuted suggestions that a steady decline in passenger numbers means charter operators are under threat. Civil Aviation Authority figures released last week showed passengers who used Great Britain charter flights in 2005 dropped by two million year on year. A CAA spokesman said the charter passenger downturn was due to a combination of factors including the collapse of traditional package holidays and the growth of charter airlines operating scheduled flights.
