Air Atlanta were never grounded by the CAA. The CAA revoked their approval for several UK airlines to wet lease aircraft from Air Atlanta. Air Atlanta were never prevented from carrying out operation in the UK under their own traffic rights. As Woodman says the CAA approvals were restored once the issue in question had been investigated.

Just a small note to clarify.
The report that the UK CAA were obliged to act apon was submitted by a disgruntled recently fired employee. The UK CAA were totally correct to investigate and did so thoroughly.
The MX operation in MSE and the spares handeling division at that time in Poyle was audited thoroughly by both the UK CAA and the Icelandic CAA.
There were no transgressions found in reference to the report that was submitted. Both CAA bodies instantly re instated all AAIs operating rights.
AAIs MX operation is off the field at MSE and the only facility on the airfield that is used in the line mx office, operations, and the line interior shop.
All other facilities are provided by purpose built JAR approved facilities located within a few miles of the airfield. These facilites provide overhaul and component maintenance on a wide and ever expanding variety of aircraft components. All of which are given a fully approved JAR form one servicable label. These facilities are operated by an english arm of Air Atlanta called Avia services which is governed by the UK CAA and UK Law. As such they meet or exceed all UK legaslative requirments, (They are also ISO approved) and are regularly audited by the same.
Avia services provide overhaul and parts supply on a regular basis to a variety of UK and International airlines. VAA BA etc. I dont think they need any further recommendation than that.
Please visit their web site for further infomation.
If its good enough for the UKs best, I fail to see how this could be construde as shoddy.

So if Air Atlanta get a UK AOC, does this mean that Iceland will still be the Ops Control centre, or will that have to move to the UK?

I wonder if this will involve the B747 fleet sooner, rather than later?
