Several alarmist scenarios have been proposed with respect to the UK aviation industry post-Brexit. There is no doubt that Brexit creates unwelcome uncertainty and risks in the operating, regulatory and economic environments of several industries including aviation. The precise outcome will only be known once agreements on complex issues are reached. These include whether or not the UK will be part of the single market; and particularly part of the EU-US open skies agreement, whether it will be part of the European Common Aviation Area if it is not part of the single market, or whether World Trade Organization rules would provide an adequate framework or basis for continued operations.
