As a pan-European association with a membership wider than the EU, ERA does not normally involve itself in decisions taken by a particular European country. However the UK’s recent decision to leave the European Union will have an impact beyond the UK and will affect a number of ERA members in the EU and the UK.
The ERA Board adopted a resolution at the October 2016 meeting in Madrid, calling the UK and EU authorities to work towards a solution ensuring:
- full and open traffic rights between the EU and the UK as currently allowed in EU regulation 1008/2008,
- UK registered carriers continue to retain the rights allowed for in EU regulation 1008/2008,
- continued application of EASA rules and regulations to UK operators and companies based in the UK to create a common European regulatory framework.
The UK Department for Transport and Civil Aviation Authority have constituted a stakeholder working group in order to provide regular updates on UK Government plans for developing air transport agreements and to discuss access to the EU Single Aviation Market. ERA has secured a place on this group and will update members as to progress.
The last meeting took place on 24 November 2016.
