Brexit threat to UK-EU flights rises

The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT -

MA­JOR dis­rup­tion to flights between Bri­tain and the EU from March 2019 is look­ing in­creas­ingly likely as Brexit talks pro­ceed, Ryanair chief ex­ec­u­tive Michael O’Leary said yes­ter­day. Air­lines say they would need a new bi­lat­eral deal between the UK and Europe by Oc­to­ber next year to re­place the EU’s “open skies” regime, which al­lows EU air­lines to fly where they wish within the bloc, to pro­vide sched­uled flights. O’Leary said early signs from Brexit talks were not promis­ing due to the EU want­ing the Euro­pean Court of Jus­tice to have sole ju­ris­dic­tion over any deal. – Reuters
