EU-UK flights could cease in event of no-deal Brexit

Flights could cease between the EU and UK if Britain crashes out of the bloc with no deal, the government has said.

Flights could be canceled because the EU-issued aviation licenses will not be valid, and airlines would have to, in case of no-deal, seek individual permissions to operate with respective states.

“If the UK leaves from the EU in March 2019 with no agreement in place, UK and EU licensed airlines would lose the automatic right to operate air services between the UK and rest of the EU without seeking advance permission,” said the government.


This could be the basis of a deal between the UK and the EU to keep flights in the air. Not only that, this would affect flights from the UK to Europe and vice versa, but most of the flights from American airlines are connecting to Europe through British partner airlines like British Airways.

In the case of no-deal, they would have to prepare for travel at least four to six months ahead of the date they would like to travel. Owners would need to prove that their pets were adequately vaccinated against
