Airlines UK respond to Article 50 announcement

March 29th, 2017

Responding to the announcement by the Prime Minister that she has today invoked Article 50, paving the way for the UK to withdraw from the European Union, Tim Alderslade, Chief Executive of Airlines UK, the industry body representing UK-registered airlines, said:

“People will continue to want to fly across Europe after the UK leaves the EU. We look forward to the EU and UK reaching an agreement as soon as possible that allows consumers and businesses from all European countries to continue to travel to and from the UK and around Europe just as they do today.”
