FRONTLINE 1974 T ravelnews, September 5, 1974


O The Civil Aviation Authority announced tougher bonding requirements. It increased the bonding level for non-Abta companies from 10% of anticipated turnover to 12.5% and for Abta companies from 5% to 7.5% from October 1, with further rises to 15% and


10% respectively for next year. O There was a stunned reaction to Pan America’s plea for an immediate subsidy to stay afloat. This would see the US


airline becoming a state-supported carrier. O Meanwhile, Cristalotel hotels were forced to shut as the full impact of Court Line’s collapse hit Spanish resorts. Travelnews reported that the Hotel Carousel in Majorca and Saronga Playa in Menorca had closed, and three more were said to be imminent. Cristalotel was a subsidiary of holding company Cristaltour in which Clarksons had a 50% stake. Clarksons’ parent company was Court Line.

O New Abta chief executive Ian Reynolds faced renewed threats of an exodus by the multiples, just a week into the job. Going Places warned it might leave Abta unless it got value for money, while Thomas Cook committed


to stay a member for only another year. O Separately, Abta wrote to 392 firms warning them they would be thrown out for


non-payment of subscriptions. O Thomson sales reps were banned from Going Places shops in the first step of the latter’s plan to centralise its brochure racking policy. British Airways Holidays announced nine job losses, blaming new restrictions on reps’ visits


by Going Places and Lunn Poly. O On the same topic, Sunvil Holidays managing director Noel Josephides expressed shock in his column at the OFT’s decision not to investigate the industry’s trading practices. Lunn Poly was reported as accounting for half of Thomson’s sales.

O Abta announced plans to force bed bank members to assume liability in the event of an agency failure. The rule change meant bed bank members would have to honour bookings if an Abta agency failed, even if they


had not been paid. O Totally Travel chairman and industry veteran Harry Goodman teamed up with Hays Travel boss John Hays to launch a tour operation selling

upmarket long-haul breaks, with holidays due to go on sale through the agency’s shops, call centres and


homeworkers in December. O EasyJet said it was closing its East Midlands base and cutting flights from Luton because of


a 25% hike in charges. O Abta appointed Luke Pollard as head of public affairs and Nikki White joined as head of destination strategy and services. This followed the departure of Andy Cooper, who joined Thomas Cook.
