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.
On 24 December 2020, an agreement in principle was reached at negotiators’ level. With the draft agreement in place, the United Kingdom will leave the EU Single Market and Customs Union, and all EU policies on January 2021 whilst attempting to limit the disruption insofar as possible. Both parties will now advance with the signature and ratification of the draft agreement, in line with their respective rules and procedures, with a view to its provisional application from 1 January 2021.
EBAA published it’s initial guidance to operators shortly after the draft agreement was published and it can be found below or go to our industry updates.
