UK airlines – Brexit deal “represents a path which can provide certainty and confidence for airlines, passengers and businesses alike

December 5, 2018

Commenting on the Brexit deal between the UK Government and EU Commission and its implications for aviation and air travel, Tim Alderslade, Chief Executive of Airlines UK, the industry association that represents 13 UK carriers, said:

“For UK aviation a withdrawal agreement is clearly in the interests of both the UK and Europe and so this agreement represents a path which can provide certainty and confidence for airlines, passengers and businesses alike. Any future Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement – which the Government and EU Commission have signalled their intention to sign post-Brexit – should then aim to deliver the market access between the UK and EU that passengers and cargo benefit from today.”
