ABTA steps up Brexit activity as trade talks begin

ABTA is stepping up its activity to highlight what the industry wants as Brexit trade talks get underway.

It says priorities for the travel industry include a comprehensive air service agreement to protect flights and replacing the mobility benefits of the EU Posted Workers Directive.

ABTA also wants reciprocal healthcare to be retained and open discussions with third countries, such as Switzerland, around access for occasional coach services.

Head of public affairs Luke Petherbridge said: "The risk of no-deal may have subsided for now, but there is much work to be done to help shape the UK's future relationship with the EU to protect our industry and ensure the public can continue to holiday and travel with the same rights and freedoms as they have today.

"Throughout the process ABTA has provided advice and guidance to customers and members on Brexit and will continue to do so."

ABTA has published new guidance for members and also for consumers

It is also holding an event in London on February 24 called Brexit - The Immigration and Skills Challenge.
