Brexit - The Legal and Operational Implications

26 January 2017

No.4 Hamilton Place, London


The aviation industry has been a long standing advocate for globalisation, harmonisation of operations standards and market access with as little restriction as possible. A clear path towards liberalisation and harmonisation was forged towards the end of the 20th century that continues today. The recent decision for the UK to leave the European Union has raised concerns over the extent that this path is still endorsed by the British Government; concerns that are amplified by the recent election of Mr Trump in the USA.
