Ryanair: UK government called on regarding Brexit.
(CercleFinance.com) - Ryanair, called on the UK Government to put aviation at the forefront of its negotiations with the EU and provide a coherent post-Brexit plan.
The risk - according to the low-cost carrier - is to see the UK cut off from the rest of Europe from March 2019, when it actually leaves the EU.
The group - which points out that the UK is set to leave Europe's “Open Skies” system, at the same time as Brexit - is urging the UK government to negotiate a bilateral agreement with the EU as soon as possible.
Without this, there is a real risk that no flights will take off to or from the United Kingdom for some time from March 2019, it warned in a statement.
Ryanair points out that, like other airlines, it sets its flight programs one year ahead of schedule, which means that it will have to establish its offer for 2019 within the next year.
Ryanair employs over 3,000 UK staff and aims to carry over 44m customers to/from British airports this year.
