No-deal Brexit must be avoided at 'all cost' in EU: ACI

IN the latest twist in the Brexit crisis with a hard landing looming ever closer, UK airlines will not be allowed to add any new routes to the European Union under contingency plans tabled by the European Commission in the event of a no-deal Brexit

IN the latest twist in the Brexit crisis with a hard landing looming ever closer, UK airlines will not be allowed to add any new routes to the European Union under contingency plans tabled by the European Commission in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

While most have welcomed the publication of the contingency plans, Airports Council International (ACI) Europe noted that the regulation made it clear that UK airlines will also not be permitted to ramp up frequencies on currently operated routes for 12 months starting from when the UK exits the European Union, reported London's Air Cargo News.



'The capacity currently offered by UK airlines to the EU27 market will thus be frozen as of 29 March 2019 if the deal negotiated between the UK and the EU27 is not agreed,' ACI Europe said.



ACI Europe director general Olivier Jankovec said: 'The Brexit deal on the table would guarantee a business-as-usual scenario thanks to transition arrangements it foresees. All this shows that there is no such thing as a silver lining for aviation with the no-deal scenario - and that it must be avoided at all cost.'
