THE CIVIL Aviation Authority said tough measures introduced last year have led to a fall in companies overtrading and fewer calls on the Air Travel Trust Fund.
Figures show the number of licences exceeded dropped from 260 in 1996/7 to 184 during the 12 months to March 1999. Calls on the ATTF fell from around £4.1m to £2m in the same period. The measures include allowing the CAAto demand guarantees from company directors or owners on overtrading and the right to carry out on-site checks. However, Air Travel Organiser's Licence holders want the measures to be made simpler as they say they are difficult to understand and time consuming to implement.
CAA head of licensing Helen Simpson said:"We have written to them with new proposals and expect them to be in place by mid-October."
