AOA CEO: Statement on post Brexit EU-UK air connectivity

12 October, 2017

Airport Operators Association (AOA) CEO Karen Dee (11-Oct-2017) responded to UK Chancellor Philip Hammond's comments on post Brexit EU-UK connectivity and the "theoretically" conceivable scenario of no EU-UK air traffic under a "no deal" Brexit. Ms Dee said: "The Chancellor is right that we will need a new legal framework the day after Brexit to ensure continuity of air services. With airlines putting tickets on sale up to 18 months in advance of the date of travel, it is vital that a transition deal is agreed as soon as possible to give consumers and businesses the confidence their future travel will be uninterrupted".
