Airports call for urgent post-Brexit deal on UK-EU flights
Owners of five major UK airports say uncertainty over future of flights is hitting passenger numbers hard, in report submitted to ministers
Airports have joined forces to press the government to urgently strike a post-Brexit deal on flights between the UK and the EU, warning that the current uncertainty alone would be enough to see bookings drop by up to 41%.
A report submitted to ministers by the owners of Manchester, Stansted, Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports concludes that even if flights are not interrupted in March 2019 when Britain leaves the EU passenger numbers are likely to be hit hard without early assurances.
