On 29 March the UK formally notified its intention to leave the EU. The EU is currently preparing its position ahead of formal EU Exit negotiations, and no negotiations as yet have taken place.

The Government is considering carefully all the potential implications arising from the UK’s exit from the EU and plans to negotiate the best possible relationship between the UK and the EU in the field of aviation. The Department for Transport is working closely with the sector to best understand its requirements and to ensure that the outcome of the negotiations serves the interests of both passengers and the aviation industry.
