<p>Ministers regularly meet with representatives from the aviation industry to discuss the implications of EU exit on aviation, including safety, and to ensure their requirements are factored into preparations.</p><p> </p><p>We are confident of agreeing our future partnership with the EU, including on aviation, but we have a duty to plan for the alternative. The Department’s aviation technical notices and the EU’s published plans for aviation contingency preparations, updated with proposed EU regulations on 19 December, clearly demonstrate that, in the unlikely event of no deal, both sides are committed to maintaining connectivity.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the Government has introduced legislation to ensure that the UK exits the EU with maximum certainty and continuity - the European Union (Withdrawal) Act will convert EU law as it stands at the moment of exit into domestic law, meaning that the same rules and laws will apply on the day after exit as on the day before.</p><p> </p><p>This means that after exit the same safety rules will continue to apply. The UK is committed to maintaining current levels of safety and will continue to strive to improve on these after leaving the EU. Being outside the EU will not change the UK’s approach to aviation safety.</p><p> </p><p>The SI, the draft Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, that was laid before Parliament in draft on 28 November, makes the changes needed to ensure that retained EU legislation on air passenger rights continues to function correctly under any scenario. This will help to provide continuity and certainty to industry and consumers.</p>
