It’s been revealed that the UK government, through the Department of Transport, has recently advertised a job role for head of aviation EUR exit negotiations just nine months before the proposed Brexit deadline.
As the UK and EU move closer to a deadline deal date of March 29, 2019, there are resurfacing fears in the aviation industry regarding the potential disastrous effects of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, single market and customs union.
TTG reported that the Department of Transport has posted an advert for the role in which the individual hired will “lead on the overall negotiating position on aviation”.
The post states that no previous experience working in airline business is needed, although it is preferred.
Concerns are growing that carriers will ground flights if no deal is agreed next year. Airbus has also recently stated it will pull all investments form the UK is no deal is agreed nine months from now.
