Michael O’Leary, the boss of Europe’s biggest low-cost airline had some stark warning over a no-deal Brexit
He said “Flights to and from Europe will be stopped in a hard deal Brexit,” the Irishman told a news conference. “There is no assurance.”
However, he added: “I don’t believe that a no-flight scenario will last for more than a couple of days or a couple of weeks; because I think politically, it is unassailable.”
O’Leary said that the negotiations are “running out of time” before the March 2019 cut off point.
Mr O’Leary has warned of flights being grounded in post-Brexit, and said there have been no assurances that flights will not be grounded in the days after the UK leaves the EU next March.
He added: “All of us in business want to see a good outcome for Brexit.
“The problem is we are getting very little clarity from certainly the UK political leadership here and we are getting closer and closer to the date.”
