ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the appeal by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) to end the regulations that exempt airlines from protection cost to passengers. In what it call as the biggest hole in the financial protection regime for travelers, ABTA is of the opinion that if continued, this advantage enjoyed by airlines will result in increased numbers of consumers exposed to the risk of loss of pre-payments and without a right to a scheme of repatriation.
