The contingency measures adopted by the EU, including the implementing regulation amendment recognising the UK’s security regime and the reciprocal measures announced by the UK, mean that flights and the movement of cargo and passengers will be able to continue, even in a no deal scenario. Indeed, both the UK and the EU are committed to maintaining connectivity.
