UK Airports emphasizes post Brexit aviation agreement

UK Airports emphasizes postHuge number of MP’s in the UK believes that the country should have new international aviation agreements to combat Brexit. Even airport authorities said that lack such agreements could make Britain appear less powerful and might cause hindrance in trading globally. This call became even clearer after ComRes survey came to the front. 152 MP’s were surveyed out of which 86 percent considered that UK’s access to air links subsequent to its removal from the EU is more crucial than ever before.

Building new aviation agreement is one of the top priorities of the UK government going ahead with Britain’s exit from EU. To quote Ed Anderson, AOA Chairman said: “International aviation connectivity will form the foundation upon which a truly global Britain is built, with already nearly three quarters of visitors to the UK – and 40% of the UK’s trade by value travelling by air – UK airports stand ready to facilitate this future connectivity.’’

He also said, ‘’The UK was the driving force behind the open and liberal approach to air connectivity within the EU and between the EU and countries like the US and Canada. This move away from the old, restrictive approach to aviation has benefited consumers and businesses alike, more destinations are served from the UK more frequently and at lower fares. It is important that UK families going on holiday and businesspeople seeking out new trade opportunities can continue to enjoy the benefits we see today of an open aviation market.’’
