Airlines & airports welcome clarity from European Commission that flights would continue under ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario

November 14th, 2018

Commenting on the European Commission publishing guidance confirming that flights between the UK and EU would continue in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario, Tim Alderslade, Chief Executive of Airlines UK, and Karen Dee, Chief Executive of the Airport Operators Association, said:

“We welcome that the European Commission has joined the UK Government in providing further reassurance to passengers and businesses that flights will continue whatever happens over the coming weeks.

“That said, a comprehensive bilateral air services agreement between the UK and EU remains the best way to protect market access post-Brexit and is clearly in the interests of both sides.”
