We want our future relationship with the EU to be based on mutual economic and security interests.

To which end, it will be in the interests of all parties to maintain closely integrated aviation markets. The opening up of access to air services helps to deliver connectivity, choice and value for money that benefits consumers and businesses both here and abroad.

The Government continues to work closely with the aviation sector to ensure this industry continues to be a major success story for the British economy. As well as seeking suitable aviation arrangements with the EU, the Department for Transport is also working closely with the aviation community to ensure that this global industry continues to be a major success.
