This week’s Newswatch

So the votes are in and the UK has voted to leave the EU.


Short term implications looks significant with some financial market turmoil and political ramifications.
In aviation terms I cannot think of one airline CEO in the UK who thought Brexit would be positive. So what will be the issues for our sector?


Some businesses with foresight took contingency measures over possible Brexit, such as recently opening a Dublin office.


The Economist has an excellent summary of what happens next, and the FT has flagged a profit warning from IAG as airline shares were hit by brexit trading.

Further ramifications are likely as sterling falls  – more expensive travel for UK tourists (not good for aviation) but a cheaper cost of UK services for others (good for aviation)
Aviation is of course a global business – most “shocks” when put into context are just that – short term blips from SARS, 9/11, GFC create an immediate fall but the market bounces back.
