Q I read with interest your comments about changes to travel due to Brexit. One thing you didn’t mention is European air passengers’ rights. I haven’t seen any discussion about what happens after the end of 2020. I’d assumed flights from the UK into Europe would still be covered, but it seems the protection only applies if the airline is headquartered in the EU.
A Membership of the European Union has benefited airline passengers from the UK in two ways. The most significant was the concept of “open skies”. Liberating aviation from the grip of the overpriced and inefficient national carriers allowed low-cost start-ups such as easyJet and Wizz Air to flourish, and helped “legacy” airlines to reform.
