Aer Lingus caught up in Brexit contingency plans – Clune
The European Parliament will today vote on EU proposals to ensure what they’re calling “basic connectivity” for the aviation industry in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The EU Commission says its temporary proposals should avoid any interruption of air traffic between the EU and the UK should Britain crash out of the EU without a deal.
The Fine Gael MEP Deidre Clune says the contingency plans will last until the end of 2019. And she says the issue of ownership of airlines in the EU could have an impact on Aer Lingus which is owned by AIG - the parent company of British Airways.
