ryanairRyanair’s finance chief officer harshly criticised the lack of progress on aviation rules after Brexit.

 

Neil Sorahan, the Chief Financial Officer of Europe’s biggest budget airline said that they are hearing an awful lot about it all be right on the night. But nobody can actually tell how it’s going to be right on the night.

 

Ryanair certainly wants to keep Britain flying however, there is still no certainty about the operation. He said,” unless people actually start sitting around a table and discussing this, nobody will have this kind of certainty. And that’s a big problem for all the airlines.”

 

The Transport Secretary, Chris Grayling said that he was confident about an open skies agreement with the US after Brexit. Without directly mentioning the flights between Britain and Europe, he said: “I am committed to putting passengers at the heart of our transport policy, and that will certainly apply to the arrangements that exist when we leave the EU.”

 

Earlier, Ryanair announced that some or all of its UK-based aircraft would move to continental Europe in April 2019 if no deal was reached to replace the present “open skies” arrangement. Open skies agreement falls under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, which the UK has indicated it will leave.

 

A DfT spokesperson has said that they are working closely with the international aviation community to ensure that the global industry continues to be a major success story for the UK economy.
