UK airlines – welcome clarity from European Commission that flights will continue under ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario

December 19th, 2018

Commenting on the European Commission publishing guidance today 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, the industry association that represents 13 UK carriers, said:

“This is yet further clarity that flights will continue between the UK and EU even in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as we have always said. Combined with the excellent progress Government has made in concluding bilateral agreements with third countries – including the United States and Canada – passengers should have every confidence in booking holidays and trips for travel on 30 March and beyond.”
