Reassurance that UK air connectivity will not be disrupted in a no-deal scenario

Commenting on the European Commission’s Contingency Action Plan published today [Wednesday 19 December 2018], Chief Executive of the Airport Operators Association, Karen Dee said:

“Travellers looking to book their 2019 holidays, family visits and business trips can rest assured that there will be no disruption to their flights in a no-deal Brexit scenario, following the publication today of the European Commission’s Contingency Action Plan.

“This comes on top of the important steps the UK Government has taken in concluding UK bilateral agreements with non-EU countries like the US and Canada where we currently fly to under a EU-level agreement.

“While an orderly transition period remains airports’ top priority, today’s announcements alongside the UK’s technical notices released in September this year, should reassure passengers that the UK’s essential air connectivity will continue to operate.”
