The power of a UK primarily based service to fly between EU airports (e.g. from Brussels to Vienna) would stop to be a assured proper. Monetary passporting from the UK to the remainder of the EU could be terminated on a tough Brexit and different passports of a extra sentimental worth (pet passports) would now not be legitimate. This may imply travellers would both have to go away their pets within the UK or put them by quarantine within the EU (and possibly UK upon return).
