Following the UK’s Vote to Leave the European Union, low-cost carrier easyJet has
said its initial focus will be to accelerate discussions with UK and EU governments and regulators to ensure that the UK remains part of the single EU aviation market. The airline noted this would enable EU airlines to fly freely within the UK and between the UK and EU and allow UK airlines to fly freely across Europe as they do now. However, easyJet stated it will also: “continue to develop its alternative options that will fully maintain its existing network and operations.”
Carolyn McCall, easyJet CEO commented: “We remain confident in the strength of easyJet’s business model and our ability to continue to deliver our successful strategy and our leading returns. We have today written to the UK Government and the European Commission to ask them to prioritise the UK remaining part of the single EU aviation market, given its importance to trade and consumers.”
