Do you remember Brexit?

The UK left the European Union at 11.00 PM CET on 31 January 2020, ending 47 years of membership.

Both the UK and EU Parliaments have finally ratified the renegotiated withdrawal agreement reached in October 2019. Consequently, the UK remains in the EU Single Market and Customs Union, and is bound by its rules until 31 December 2020.

Earlier this month, we learned that there will be no extension of the Brexit transition period beyond 31 December 2020, meaning that the EU and the UK will have to strike a deal in just six months to avoid the UK leaving the Union without one.

What’s next for aviation and business aviation? Attorney Giulia Mauri, EBAA member and Founder of KADRANT wasn’t aware about the non-extension of the transition period at the time she wrote her article, and she doesn’t have a proverbial crystal ball, but she certainly provides an excellent status update on where we stand in the negotiations and what it means for our sector.

The Brexit section on our website provides EBAA members with practical information on the latest developments and the various actions required to maintain operations between the EU and the UK.
