ABTA renews call for financial protection review in wake of  flyLAL failure

ABTA is again calling on the government to again review financial protection in the wake of the failure of Lithuanian Airlines – flyLAL.

The airline ceased to trade on Saturday January 17. Passengers who were booked with flyLAL will be fully protected if they booked their flights as part of a package holiday. However, other customers may or may not get their money back as the airline has stated that it is unable to provide refunds.

“This failure in a tough economic climate, along with numerous other airline failures who failed last year, highlights the importance of having financial protection in place when you book flights,” said Mark Tanzer, ABTA chief executive. “ABTA Members can offer the maximum amount of protection. Just ask.”
