CAA confirms April 'too soon' for Atol reform

The government's planned Atol reform will not be implemented in full from April, the Civil Aviation Authority has admitted.

CAA consumer protection group director Richard Jackson said the reforms would come in in April, but businesses will not be expected to fully comply until October.

He told the parliamentary transport select committee today: "It will be difficult for the industry to be ready by April because it can't move finally until the Department for Transport announces its decision.

"I will be surprised if all the changes will come in in April. There will be a sensible implementation phase. We will wait until probably October 1 for all the changes required to be made to systems."
