ABSTRACT
The article reports on the possible delay for the reform of the Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (ATOL) scheme in Great Britain. It states that the ATOL scheme reform will not happen until 2011 which will extend the consumer protection and will include the sale of any flight in addition to another holiday element. It adds that the reforming of ATOL was driven by the talks made between senior trade figures and the Department for Transport (DfT).
