Flights between countries are operated under the open ski agreement between the US and the EU. “This right was not previously available to US airlines under the EU-US deal,” the DOT adds. The terms of the agreement were concluded on 28 November 2018. The agreement “will facilitate a smooth transition in international air markets for the travelling public, airlines, shippers and other stakeholders,” the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) said in a statement. Theresa May`s Brexit deal with Brussels states that Britain and the EU have agreed to negotiate a “comprehensive air transport agreement” for flights between Britain and the EU during the planned transition period, but it would not apply if the UK left the EU without a deal. The original agreement was signed on April 30, 2007 in Washington, D.C. The US-UK Open Skies Agreement grants additional rights to cargo flights Britain will automatically leave the ECAA, as well as all horizontal agreements negotiated by the EU at the end of the transition period. . . .
