Monarch failure 'raised important policy questions'

Monarch failure 'raised important policy questions'

ATT chairman Michael Medlicott, writing to transport secretary Chris Grayling upon release of the report, said he was “glad” the trust was able to play a significant role in the Monarch repatriation - but warned the government’s intervention “raised important policy questions concerning the wholesale repatriation of non-Atol protected passengers.


“The trust has paid its ‘fair share’ of the cost of that operation and in that sense, trustees’ obligations under the trust deed have been met,” he said.


“But it is also true the CAA’s expert resources, built up over the years and largely funded by the trust, have been used for the benefit of non-Atol passengers.


“In that context, trustees fully support your decision to launch the independent Airline Insolvency Review, and trust that its recommendations will lead to a more satisfactory framework for the benefit of both the government and consumers.”


Looking ahead, Medlicott added: “The new Atol regulations [and] implementing the relevant aspects of the Package Travel Directive in the UK will being new challenges in the years ahead.

 

“The key challenge for the trust will be extending the boundaries of protection beyond the UK’s borders.”
