High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Court Line was a prominent British holiday charter airline during the early 1970s based at Luton Airport in Bedfordshire. It also provided bus services in Luton and surrounding areas. It helped pioneer the concept of "cheap and cheerful" package tours to Spain and other destinations in the "Med" in conjunction with Clarksons Holidays, thus taking part in the establishment of a whole new way of holidaymaking for the British public. Both the airline and its associated tour operator, Clarksons Travel Group, went bankrupt in August 1974, with at least Pds. 7m owing to 100,000 holidaymakers.
