US, UK Reach Post-Brexit Open Skies Agreement

29 November 2018
The AP reports that the US and Britain have reached an agreement to “maintain air service between the two countries after Brexit.” British Transport Secretary Chris Grayling “confirmed the so-called open-skies agreement on Wednesday.” The deal will maintain air access allowed under the current US-Europe air treaty, which will no longer apply after Britain leaves the European Union. The Airlines for America trade union praised the agreement for ensuring the continuation of key transatlantic routes. Flights between the two countries “carry about 20 million passengers a year, accounting for nearly one-third of all air travel between the US and Europe.” (Image: British Airways A320 taking off on a transatlantic flight.
