Brexit and the civil aviation industry: no change for 'minimalist' mode next?

Date:2020-02-29

Britain officially ended its 47-year membership of the European Union on the evening of January 31, 2020.For now, however, little has changed beyond the official form, and the tricky business has only just begun.At this time, Britain really felt whether brexit was a better outcome.

The British parliament and the European parliament signed a renegotiated brexit deal in October 2019.The result of the renegotiation is that the UK will remain a member of the eu's single market and customs union until 31 December 2020 and will be bound by eu rules, but will no longer be a member.Such a transition should give the two sides time to negotiate new trade deals across a wide range of industries.

In terms of civil aviation, the UK will remain part of the common European aviation area for the rest of 2020.Both airlines will be able to operate flights between the UK and other parts of Europe's single market.Britain also remains a member of the European Union's aviation safety agency, ensuring that current safety regulations are not suspended.The transition avoids a "hard" brexit in the short term.Without a New Deal, however, the clock is ticking until 2021.Civil aviation flights could be banned.But there is a greater chance of a "minimalist" version of navigation rights and safety rules.
