MEPs scramble to BACK Britain, demanding GENEROUS no-deal Brexit aviation terms

The European Parliament group working on no-deal contingency plans have urged the EU Commission to rethink the bloc’s aviation ownership rules and scrap an automatic cap on flights between the UK and EU. The EU Parliament’s transport committee has set out amendments to EU law that will allow “limited” air traffic with the UK to be maintained, even in the event of a hard Brexit. The amendment says the EU Commission “may grant a temporary exemption from the ownership requirement” until the end of March 2020 if airlines have the valid operating licences and is less than half-owned by UK nationals.
