Protection for flights and road after Brexit reaffirmed 

On the 5 September 2019 the Government confirmed that they have measures in place to make sure flight and road haulage will continue to run smoothly after 31 October if the UK leaves the EU. There will also be an extension on the UK’s air traffic rights for EU airlines until October 2020. This builds on the agreements revealed in March 2019, this means that air travel is guaranteed to continue without change until March 2020 no matter when we leave the EU.

Key Facts:

  • Government confirm they have taken measures to make sure flight and road haulage runs smoothly after the UK leave the EU
  • Airline travel is guaranteed to continue without change until March 2020.

 Grant Shapps, Secretary of State, said:

“We welcome these proposals from the European Commission to extend arrangements allowing flights and road haulage to continue between the UK and EU after Brexit. Connectivity is at the forefront of this government’s vision for a global, outward-facing Britain and these extensions between the UK and EU ensure that it will be business as usual when travelling and trading for the foreseeable future.”
