At 10.10am

Likely questions

  • How far in advance will airports need to be aware of the customs and immigration arrangements that will apply between the UK and EU post-Brexit in order to prepare and put in place the necessary provisions and staff?
  • Could a distinct bilateral aviation deal be reached even in the absence of a wider UK-EU Free Trade Agreement? What would be the essential components of such a deal?
  • What action could the Government take to help make the UK aviation sector more competitive and boost trade internationally post-Brexit?
