No legal requirement to have an ATOL Bond.
No scheduled airline operating into / out of the UK is required to have any type of ATOL bonding.
ATOL stands for 'A'ir 'T'ravel 'O'rganiser's 'L'icence.

ATOL is only required by entities SELLING holidays departing from the UK.

Any airline simply selling SEATS, requires ZERO atol bonding.

You didn't read my reply.

ATOL is only required when SELLING a PACKAGE HOLIDAY departing the UK.

A FLIGHT ONLY SALE required ZERO atol bonding.

Does American Airlines/BA/Iberia/Easyjet/Ryanair etc require ATOL bonding for Flight only ??? NO

One Aircraft operation does not constitute a Airline that can sustain a scheduled operation
Their financial status needs scrutiny ..Do they have a ATOL?
Stay away is my advice unless they have full ATOL Protection
