Brexit negotiations on key issues must start soon, especially the complex issue of aviation, according to Europe’s largest travel company.
The message from Tui Group coincided with the British government’s breakthrough deal with the European Union to move Brexit talks onto the next stage.
Tui issued a new policy agenda document today covering a range of subjects from climate protection in aviation through to accessible holidays and taxes on airlines.
The travel giant called for a push for progress in Brexit talks, “The Brexit negotiations are encountering all kinds of stumbling blocks despite an already tight timeframe. In fact, the negotiations on the details of the Brexit deal haven’t even begun,” Tui said.
“This is a concern for the tourism industry because it has to be aware of the terms of that deal to be able to plan for the 2019 summer season.
“This is predominantly in the interest of countries in the south of the European Union which are highly dependent on British tourists. Almost one in four holidaymakers in Spain comes from the United Kingdom.”
