The UK government has confirmed details of measures that will ensure flights will continue without disruption in the event of a ‘No Deal Brexit’ scenario.
This announcement comes as the EU is also about to finalise its no deal aviation regulation that will protect UK airlines flying into Europe. Both these proposals will ensure continued aviation connectivity in any scenario.
Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg said:
Measures put forward by the UK and the EU will ensure that flights can continue in any scenario; deal or no deal.
This is good news, not only for the industry but most importantly it reaffirms the fact that passengers can book flights with confidence, as normal.
Around 164 million passengers travel between the UK and the EU each year; these measures are designed to ensure that passengers can continue to take business and leisure flights in a no deal scenario.
“This announcement gives industry certainty and the public the assurance needed to book and fly with absolute confidence.
“These proposals are a no deal contingency measure and will only come into force if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. The UK remains committed to securing a deal but continues to prepare for all scenarios.”
