Extended Brexit Guidance

Following the publishing of the draft EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, EBAA continuously provides guidance to operators on how to continue operations in a post-Brexit reality.

Last updated 28/01/2021

On Saturday 26 December 2020, the European Commission published the draft EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. The draft agreement foresees cooperation between the EU and UK and contains dedicated titles on transport and aviation which require appropriate level playing field guarantees.

EBAA published its initial guidance to operators shortly after the draft agreement was published (28/12/2021).

The guidance published contains a repository of information covering the frequently asked questions on the changes resulting from the end of the Brexit transition period and the publication of the draft EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement:

  • Traffic rights, authorisations & permits
  • Aircraft operations, maintenance and licensing
  • Taxation

EBAA is constantly monitoring Brexit developments and is in touch with the respective national and EU authorities. Members who have questions can get in contact with our EU Affairs department or can contact their national authority directly. EBAA will continue to provide updates as appropriate and provide further analysis on the agreement to better understand the implications of the new relationship between the EU and the UK.

Should you run into operational issues that are not addressed in this document please contact us.

Disclaimer: This guidance doesn’t aim at being exhaustive considering the variety of potential situations, if you have any doubts about how to handle the end of the transition period, we advise you to contact your national authorities and/or legal counsels as soon as possible.
