Civil Aviation Authority: Powers

Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL8885, tabled on 7 October 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to review the enforcement powers held by the Civil Aviation Authority under the Enterprise Act 2002; and what plans they have to enhance its powers to take action against airlines and travel companies who fail to comply with legislation on refunds for cancelled services.

The CAA has full powers to legally enforce compliance of the airline obligations to refund customers for cancelled flights. HMG will review the CAA powers in due course to ensure they are fit for purpose for the sector in the future.
