IATA hopeful of minimal disruption from Brexit cutover
December 13, 2018 / GRAHAM DUNN
Airline body IATA is optimistic that the relevant governments will take the necessary steps to ensure continuity of air services after the UK's scheduled departure from the European Union on 29 March 2019. While flagging his concerns about continued uncertainty, IATA director general Alexandre de Juniac says he does not expect air services to be disrupted in the planned transition period. We see the negotiators from both sides aware of what is at stake and aware and conscious of the need of doing everything to prevent a drop in the traffic, said de Juniac during IATA's global media day in Geneva on 12 December. So they will do what they both can to maintain the connectivity.
