The UK civil aviation sector faces stark consequences from Brexit unless a transitional agreement is reached, according to negotiating documents released by the European Commission (EC).
The papers indicated that the United Kingdom could no longer be a member of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit, adding that the United Kingdom “ceases to be part of fully liberalised EU aviation market”, and “all current EU law-based rights, obligations, and benefits cease”.
With an end to automatic market access, ownership control rules would apply to UK airlines serving destinations in EU member countries, and there would be an “end of mutual recognition of certificates and approvals”.
