East of England MEP Alex Mayer has urged the government to listen to the latest warnings from the aviation industry of cancelled holidays and travel chaos after a meeting of the European Parliament today.

Representatives from airlines, airports and travel operators, travelled to Brussels to give the stark warnings against a so called "hard Brexit".

Currently the "Single European Sky" and "Open Skies" agreements allows any British airline to fly anywhere it likes in the EU and to sell tickets to anyone across the EU without restriction. Unlike other sectors, aviation cannot fall back on World Trade Organisation rules, so "no deal" would leave flights grounded.

The single market in aviation has transformed flying for passengers. Fares across Europe are down by around 40% in real terms, with greater choice and new European routes opening up all the time. Brits have have benefited the most, accounting for a quarter of all European airline passengers.

Labour's Alex Mayer MEP said:

“Today’s warnings of aviation chaos show that Theresa May’s insistence that 'no deal is better than a bad deal’ is nonsense.

“It is time for a re-think from the Government so that Stansted, Luton and Southend Airports can keep flying and Brits can still enjoy their holidays.

“It would be plane stupid for the UK government to continue on their current path – they are playing fast and lose with our economy."
