Aviation is critical to both the UK and the EU, so the Government has confidence that an outcome that works in the interests of both sides can be achieved. The Government’s July 2018 White Paper sets out proposals for a comprehensive Air Transport Agreement which seeks to maintain reciprocal liberalised aviation access to, from and within the territory of the UK and the EU, as well as continued participation in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) system.

We will continue to work closely with the international aviation community to ensure that the needs of the industry are addressed as part of the negotiations and that this global industry continues to be a major success story for the UK economy.
