UK airline bosses speak out against Brexit

Two UK airline executives spoke out against Britain leaving the European Union this weekend warning that Brexit would cause an end to the era of cheap flights.

Carolyn McCall, chief executive of EasyJet said that Brexit “would see us return to the days when flying was reserved for the elite”, while Peter Long, former boss of the Tui, said that staying in the EU was essential to ‘protect the security of our holidaymakers’, adding that co-operation with other EU countries was essential in the fight against terrorism.

McCall suggested that Britain could return to the 1990s when ‘few people flew’ and those who did ‘found themselves travelling on government-owned airlines between state-controlled airports’.
