Ryanair Gets UK Air Operator Certificate
January 03, 2019 / Airwise
Ryanair has received its UK air operators certificate (AOC), allowing the Irish airline to fly domestic and international flights within and from Britain after the UK leaves the European Union in March. The airline welcomed the decision and said the risk of a ‘no deal’ Brexit is rising. A lack of agreement between the UK and the EU prior to the scheduled March 29 exit day would see Britain crashing out of the Union in a so-called hard Brexit. Ryanair said that despite its “robust post-Brexit structures, including our post-Brexit plan around European ownership, we continue to call for the UK and EU to agree on a transition deal from 31 March 2019, so that any disruption to flights and British consumer summer holidays in 2019 can be avoided.
