No-Deal Brexit Could Disturb the UK-EU Flights

Flights between the UK and the rest of the EU could cease if Britain crashes out of the bloc without a deal, commented the Whitehall. The government announced that flights could be disrupted because the EU-issued aviation licenses would not be valid and airlines would have to seek individual permissions to operate with respective states.

If the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 with no agreement in place, UK and EU licensed airlines would lose the automatic right to operate air services between the UK and the EU without seeking advance permission,” said the government.

The government said it would unilaterally grant EU airlines permission to land at British airports and hopes that member states would reciprocate. “It would not be in the interest of any EU country or the UK to restrict the choice of destinations that could be served, though if such permissions are not granted, there could be disruption to some flights” is also stated in the statement.

This would also affect flights from Europe to other countries outside the EU, connecting through British partner airlines. “We’ll provide more information in the coming months, with the aim of giving aviation businesses and passengers as much certainty as possible ahead of the UK’s exit from the EU,” said the notice.
