The uncertainty over Brexit to be a challenge for the business environment: UK’s departure from EU in March 2019 brings in significant uncertainty with regards to the aviation business environment. If UK remains in Open Skies agreement with EU, thinks shall be status quo for the Ryanair and the UK aviation industry.
