No-deal Brexit could hit UK-EU flights, trucks and pet owners, UK government warns

The British government has published its third series of technical notices to companies and individuals on how to prepare for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, Reuters reports.

Leaving the EU without a deal could stop flights and the transport of goods and would cause difficulties for pet owners who want to take their dogs on holiday, according to government documents.

One of the most significant notices is that airlines would automatically lose their right to operate between the UK and EU without seeking advance permission.

Trucks carrying goods across the English Channel could also be caught up in the confusion of a no-deal Brexit, but the UK has said it would seek bilateral agreements to ensure they would retain access.

Packaged food labeling will also have to be changed, as using the term “EU” for origins would no longer be correct for food from the UK.

Owners of dogs, cats or ferrets who want to take them to the EU may have to discuss travel plans at least four months in advance.

Britain, many Brexiteers say, will thrive in the longer term if cut loose from what they see as a doomed experiment in German-dominated unity and excessive debt-funded welfare spending.
