ABSTRACT
The article reports that Great Britain's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has refused to comment on a suggestion that it is considering a franchise agreement to allow trade organizations to manage their own Air Travel Organizers' License (ATOL) holders. Such a proposal would involve trade organizations, such as Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), or consortia such as Advantage, taking responsibility for members' ATOL cover.
