EU urged by UK tourism bodyAccording to an association of travel agents, the UK should aim to secure visa-free travel between the UK and the EU and a transitional deal could also help the sector. Britain began its formal separation from the EU last Wednesday, and the airlines have demanded that their sector to be prioritized in the forthcoming two years of negotiations to guarantee that there are no disruptions of flights.

The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) said the preservation of visa-free travel between the EU and UK after Brexit was among its principal priorities. ABTA’s other goals are: the protection of Britons’ ability to travel freely to Europe and beyond and safeguards for consumer rights, as well as stability and growth opportunities for British businesses.

According to Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA, “Travel and tourism is one of the UK’s largest industries and it is vital that the Government makes sure it can continue to thrive during and after the negotiations.” Currently, Britain is due to leave the European Union in March 2019, whether or not an agreement over the terms of its departure can be reached.
