Britain is set to seal an “open skies” agreement with the US in summer 2018 that will keep planes flying between both countries after Brexit.

A soft Brexit: the UK remains in the common free trade area and there is no problem anymore for the airlines to fly between the UK and the other EU countries. Remains to be seen what will happen to the links between the UK and non-EU countries...

When Boris would take over party leadership from May, we're far away from a soft and negociated deal.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May says her controversial Brexit blueprint, which caused the resignation of Boris Johnson and David Davies, will safeguard millions of jobs in the aerospace industry. I believe her on that!

There has been a cascade of press reports about the brexit. Today there is also an official communication from the European Commission about the brexit: the EC calls it a "Communication on preparing for the UK's withdrawal from the EU".

I haven't checked what the European Commission tells about aviation & the brexit, but it's probably in one of the documents that is added to the press release. See "For more information..." at the end of this page:

Quote from one of the documents:
SECTORIAL ILLUSTRATIONS OF PREPAREDNESS - CHALLENGES AND ACTIONS - TRANSPORT, INCLUDING AVIATION

Depending on the mode of transport (air, road, rail, maritime, inland waterway), the EU sets rules for the safety, security, and access to the EU market. These rules usually create distinctions between EU operators and third country operators and provide access to those who comply with EU requirements.

EU transport businesses should carefully assess whether the change of status of the United Kingdom from a Member State to a third country impacts their operations, and should take the necessary preparedness measures.

The Commission has published 10 notices relevant for the area of transport (air transport, aviation safety, aviation and maritime security, road transport, rail transport, seafarer qualifications, maritime transport, consumer protection and passenger rights, inland waterways, industrial products), which set out in clear terms the implications of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU's legal and regulatory framework, e.g. in the area of aviation safety, in the absence of any particular arrangement, thus providing stakeholders with the requisite clarity on the baseline situation to which they were advised to adapt.

The Commission will adopt in the foreseeable future two proposals to amend existing Regulations where the changes would be necessary under any scenario. Amending the Regulation concerning the recognition at the Union level of organisations entrusted with duties in relation to the inspection and survey of ships will increase legal certainty, secure business continuity for the affected ship owners and preserve competitiveness of EU-27 Member States' flags. The proposal to amend the Regulation establishing the Connecting Europe Facility aims at rectifying the situation following the United Kingdom's withdrawal, when the transport infrastructure of the latter will no longer be situated in the Union to ensure continued connectivity of the EU network.
It's not easy to find the one relevant notice about aviation...

Ryanair hopes to receive its UK AOC before the end of 2018, ahead of Brexit transition.

EasyJet is shifting its pilots based in mainland Europe to Austrian and German licenses in an effort to minimize the potential fall-out from a no-deal Brexit.

EasyJet to shift 1,400 UK pilot licences to Austrian ones as the LCC prepares for a no-deal Brexit.

US offers UK inferior open skies deal after Brexit

https://www.ft.com/content/9461157c-1f9 ... d3483b8b80

Interesting reading: the proposed deal contains ownership clauses, but none of the three major transatlantic airlines of Britain (British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Norwegian UK) has the required 50% British ownership. Big problem ahead!

A 50% EU ownership is currently not a problem.

UK based airlines will be able to remain owned by UK, EU and European Economic Area shareholders rather than by UK nationals alone after Brexit, under the terms of the new air services agreement struck with the US.
