Following the publishing of ERA’s (European Regions Airline Association) position on Brexit in September last year, the association has released guidance to its airlines to give them some advice in preparation for the different potential Brexit scenarios.
- Brexit is one of the biggest priorities for ERA and the purpose of the published document is to highlight the likely impact of Brexit on ERA member airlines, to collate the available information and to use both to identify possible impact mitigation strategies.
“Brexit is a European issue that affects all our member airlines either directly or indirectly. We will continue to lobby the UK and EU authorities on our members’ behalf to ensure they fully consider the broader implications of Brexit for the aviation industry, the European businesses and people and the European economy. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution and it is paramount that aviation integrity remains intact, irrespective of the political tactics of decision makers”, says Montserrat Barriga, ERA’s Director General.
ERA will be continuously supporting its members by providing timely updates and organising specific seminars and working sessions to discuss the potential risks, as well as helping them identify opportunities and develop contingency plans.
The publication, along with ERA’s other technical publications and expert analysis, can be downloaded from ERA’s website at www.eraa.org/publications/otherpublications. The association’s Brexit position paper can be found at www.eraa.org/policy/brexit.
