No disruption to flights after Brexit

Flights to continue without any Brexit impact

At this time, both the EU and the UK want flights to continue without any disruption and there will be no impact to direct flights to non-EU countries.

The current advice from UK.GOV:

Air passenger rights

For air passengers on a flight departing the UK, the same passenger rights will continue to apply after the UK leaves the European Union. For EU registered airlines, EU law will continue to apply in respect of flights to and from the EU.

Travel Insurance

Passengers should take out appropriate travel insurance, check and understand the terms and conditions of the booking with the insurance provider, the airline and holiday operator.

The travel insurance should be in place from the time the booking is made and cover any car parking arrangements in the event of cancellation.

  • The CAA advice is to consider what air travel insurance you need before booking flights and holidays.
    The EHIC (formerly E111) is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will enable access free or reduced-cost emergency treatment if travelling in Europe, but not Turkey, and usually only applies if you are treated in a public or state hospital. If ill or injured the European Health Insurance Card will not cover the costs to get you home and may not cover all medical costs, e.g. outpatient costs, prescriptions and medication.
