The UK government has confirmed that it will reciprocate the European Union’s arrangements for air travel in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

This confirms that EU airlines will be able to continue to operate flights between the UK and the EU, even in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

It reciprocates the plans the European Commission is putting in place, which would allow UK airlines to operate routes to and from the UK to EU countries. They will also be able to make stops in EU countries and fly over EU airspace.

The European parliament is due to vote on Wednesday to approve the legislation, with the final vote in council to take place within the next two weeks.

Initially the commission said flights for this year would be capped at summer levels in a no-deal, however, it has now been confirmed that this has been removed from the final legislation.
