Business Aviation Calls On Negotiators To Preserve Aviation Status Quo
|The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) has today published a Brexit analysis report, calling for negotiators in both Brussels and London to preserve the current aviation relationship as far as possible.
The report, completed in partnership with Clyde & Co, presents the current relationship between the EU and the UK, before presenting six scenarios for a future one. It maps out the key topics of interest for the business aviation industry – traffic rights, ownership and control, VAT/customs duty and the future relationship with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – analysing how these topics would fare under a future scenario.
Through this analysis the report concludes that maintaining the existing relationship as far as possible is key in avoiding detrimental impacts on the business aviation community. This scenario is closely followed by a scenario where the UK joins the European Economic Area, an approach taken by countries such as Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
