Philip Hammond has said a flight suspension is ‘theoretically’ possible
If you were planning on flying to or from the European Union on March 29, 2019, you may face a little difficulty.
While no means a certainty, Philip Hammond has said it is ‘theoretically conceivable’ that flights may be suspended on the first day of Brexit. Paedo binman caught with rape video of girl, 2, jailed for three years
The chancellor said such a scenario might be the outcome of a ‘no deal’ situation but added that he doesn’t think anybody ‘seriously believes’ that is what will happen.
He said: ‘It is theoretically conceivable that in a no deal scenario there will be no air traffic moving between the UK and the European Union on the 29th March 2019. But I don’t think anybody seriously believes that that is where we will get to.
‘There is a range of outcomes and what we will need to do at a point in time is determine what is a realistic worst case scenario that we need to plan for and invest for.’
