The ECAA and horizontal agreements allow EU airlines to fly from the UK to 17 other non-ECAA countries, such as the US, Australia and New Zealand, with reduced restrictions. This has significantly increased the number of routes and freight forwarders available to consumers. 4. Negotiation of bilateral agreements with Member States “We expect the EU to reserve emergency measures, as is currently the case, in order to ensure the continuation of flights if negotiations are not successful. Rafael Schvartzman, the International Air Transport Association`s regional vice president for Europe, told a news conference that this was the preferred option. Otherwise, the UK would have to resort to bilateral agreements with each EU member state, which it said is “a very dramatic situation that we do not expect”. Britain`s transport minister says negotiations are underway to ensure flights continue after Jan. 1. The UK`s position aims to limit the effective ownership and control of EU airlines to the EU, the UK and its nationals, but has no restrictions on who owns and controls UK airlines operating on routes to the EU. According to the UK proposal, an EU airline can be owned directly or by a majority stake by the UK and/or UK nationals and effectively control them.
This would allow UK airlines to circumvent the market restrictions linked to this agreement. Furthermore, the absence of restrictions on the ownership and control of UK airlines would allow third-country airlines to take control of UK airlines and enjoy the rights granted by that agreement; Rights that they would not necessarily enjoy under their own air transport agreement with the EU. In the absence of aviation safety agreements between the UK and the EU, there should be a number of regulatory processes within the UK system so that we can continue to regulate the UK aviation industry. We have adapted the existing systems so that they can continue to operate in the same way as today, but with the UK government and the CAA, which perform regulatory functions independently of the EU. Dave Edwards of the Air Charter Association said there was “no clarity” on how and ability British airlines operate flights between EU member states. According to Martin Robinson, CEO of the UK subsidiary of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, “this change is unlikely to make the UK more competitive in the world for flight training.” Finally, the Court is concerned about the apparent lack of concerns about seeking a timely agreement. Given that it is rare for an air services agreement to be effectively denounced without another being substituted, the Court is concerned about the legal status of airlines, passengers, and in particular the aircraft captain and their crew, on 1 January 2021, if no air transport agreement has been concluded between the EU and the UK. However, horizontal agreements do not offer the same degree of freedom as in the AEEC. For example, the open ski agreement between the US and the EU misses out the eighth and ninth freedoms for EU airlines. This page presents the work that the CAA is undertaking with regard to withdrawal from the EU, including our willingness to adopt a scenario in which there will be no air agreements between the UK and the EU at the end of the transition period. . .
