Get Packing – European Flights Still Going Ahead Whatever Happens

Let’s be honest, for many of us, there is nothing better than the feeling of exploring new destinations, turning up in a country and discovering its many sights, landmarks, and cultural traditions.

And us Brits are so lucky to have Europe on our doorstep, as when we get bored of the dismal weather here in the UK, we can easily hop on a plane and enjoy exploring the multitude of historic, natural and political sites countries on the continent have to offer.

However, with Britain set to leave the European Union (EU) imminently, many young travellers have been left worried their holiday plans will be affected, particularly if politicians can’t settle on a deal – which seems to be the way things are heading.

Jetsetters can rest at ease for now though, as the European Parliament has voted to allow UK airlines to operate routes to and from Europe in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

We can all breathe a sigh of relief as the chief executive of ABTA – The Travel Association Mark Tanzer has said: “Deal or no-deal, flights will continue, meaning people can book with confidence.”

This agreement goes both ways, of course, and Britain has also agreed to allow flights from European airlines to carry on as scheduled if there is a no-deal Brexit.

As most of us who travel a lot know, millions of people travel between Europe and Britain every year – 164 million, in fact. Therefore, a disaster would ensue if everyone’s travel plans had to change because of Brexit!

With this sorted, now all us travellers have to worry about is packing our leather canvas bags for our next adventure.
