ACI EUROPE Statement on the publication of the Brexit technical notices on aviation

24 September 2018

Brussels - Following the publication today by the UK Government of its Brexit technical notices for aviation in case of a no-deal scenario, ACI EUROPE welcomes the fact that the UK would take actions aimed at minimizing disruptions to air connectivity as much as possible.

However, noting the continued uncertainty and risks that such a scenario would still entail, ACI EUROPE considers that it is essential that the UK and the EU27 reach an agreement on the UK’s exit terms and a suitable transition – this would give the two parties time to negotiate and agree their future trading relationship.

Crucially, this would also ensure continuity of the status quo after March 2019 and thus avoid any risk of disruption to air connectivity and the wider economy in the medium term (during the transition) – thus preserving the interests of consumers, airports’ communities and aviation industry stakeholders.
