The UK / EU trade deal: Aviation


On 22 December 2020, and ahead of the end of the transition period on 30 December 2020, we published a note on the consequences of Brexit for the aviation industry. At this point, discussions were still ongoing regarding a trade deal between the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU).
