European Union would not immediately ground intra-EU flights operated by British airlines after 29 March 2019 in case the UK nosedives out of the bloc with no deal, as it could set a new deadline for air carriers to reach a majority of EU ownership to maintain their operating licences.

IAG was warned by Brussels that its favoured strategy to allow it to continue to fly freely in and around Europe in the event of a no-deal Brexit will not work, as European carriers will have to show they are more than 50% EU-owned and controlled to retain flying rights in the bloc after Brexit.
