Seeking new aviation arrangements will be a priority for this Government when we begin discussions on our future relationship. Both parties want to achieve the best possible outcome for the strongest possible partnership in the future - one that works for the UK and for the EU. It is in the interests of both sides in the negotiation to maintain closely integrated aviation markets.

To discuss aviation matters we will have a strong and experienced negotiating team that is able to draw together expertise from a wide range of departments where there is specific relevant knowledge relating to each issue that is to be negotiated. The make-up of this team is likely to vary from round to round as we deploy the best available staff for each issue under negotiation.
