British low-cost airline and holiday company in process of renewing its Air Travel Organiser’s Licence
Monarch has been granted a 24-hour extension to its licence to sell package holidays. The low-cost airline and holiday company had a deadline of midnight on Saturday 30 September before its Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (Atol) expired. This allows the firm to sell Atol-protected holidays.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said: “We can confirm that Atol protection will remain available for eligible holiday bookings made with Monarch on Sunday.” This means that holidaymakers can buy Atol-protected trips from Monarch on Sunday, which will cover them from whatever date in the future their trip takes place.
