Brexit is ‘extremely unfortunate’ for the region’s aviation industry, says the European Commission

  • There is “absolutely no doubt” that Brexit would negatively impact the region’s aviation industry, the European Commission said Monday.

  • It is already certain at this point that the U.K. would not remain in the European Aviation Safety Agency and get full access to the E.U. single market for aviation, said Henrik Hololei, the European Commission’s director-general for mobility and transport.

  • Nevertheless, Hololei said he envisions the European Commission striking a deal with the U.K. similar to what the organization has with the U.S.
