https://static.rasset.ie/documents/news/2018/12/no-deal-brexit-contingency-plan.pdfAviation has been identified as a key priority area both by Ireland and the EU. In
a no deal Brexit the focus is on the risk of an abrupt interruption to flights
between the UK and the EU due to the absence of traffic rights and issues
relating to the validity of operating licences or aviation safety certificates.
Already some assurances have been provided in this area. The Commission
has confirmed that it will propose measures, to ensure that air carriers from the
UK can land in the EU and fly back to the UK (i.e. operate point to point flights)
as well as measures to UK air carriers to fly over the territory of the EU and
make technical stops (e.g. refuelling without embarkation/disembarkation of
passengers). Those measures would be subject to the condition that the UK
applies equivalent measures to air carriers from the EU.
Regarding aviation safety, for certain aeronautical products and companies, the
European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) will only be able to issue certificates
once the UK has become a third country. The Commission will propose
measures ensuring continued validity of such certificates for a limited period of
time. These measures will be subject to the condition that the UK applies similar
Likewise, the Commission will propose measures ensuring that parts
and appliances placed on the Union market before the withdrawal date, based
on a certificate issued by a legal and natural person certified by the UK Civil
Aviation Authority, may still be used under certain circumstances.
The Commission is taking action to ensure that passengers and their cabin
baggage flying from the United Kingdom and transiting via EU27 airports
continue to be exempted from a second security screening, by applying the so called ʻOne Stop Securityʼ system.
Regarding the requirement in EU law that air carriers must be majority-owned
and controlled by EU legal or natural persons, the Commission has underlined
that it is essential for companies that wish to be recognised as EU air carriers to
take all the necessary measures to ensure that they meet this requirement on
29 March 2019.
Here in Ireland, the National Civil Aviation Development Forum was established
in 2016 to facilitate engagement between Government and the air transport
sector in Ireland - from airports to aircraft leasing to airlines. It has held regular
discussions on Brexit, which have informed both the Government’s approach to
the negotiations and our priorities in them, and our detailed discussions at EU
level on Brexit preparedness.1
