It’s quite amazing I am having to say this two months from the end of what was meant to be a two year period in which everything was sorted but…..nobody knows.
By default, if nothing further happens, then a 'no deal Brexit' is where the country is heading.
Though many of the more enthusiastic pro-brexit people like to say that this is all good and fine and anything bad about it is fear-mongering, as things stand at the moment it does look to cause quite a lot of disruption for travellers as nothing has yet been agreed on how UK air traffic control, airline safety checks, and immigration will fit in with the world following the elimination of most of Britain’s international agreements.
This is of course an absolute worst case. Even many of those openly calling for no deal don’t literally mean do no extra work and just leave without any agreements. Many of them fully recognise that we have to normalise our World Trade Organisation status for example (currently the UK cannot trade on WTO rules) and other common sense things like this.
I’d like to hope this worst case won’t happen. Given that a smooth orderly Brexit in March seems highly unlikely this probably means the whole thing being delayed.
But in these uncertain times… everything is a huge nobody knows.
Looking at the list of possible options and assuming all are equally likely then things remaining largely as they are for another few years at least and there being no disruption comes out on top.
But if the worst case comes to pass and the drawbridge is pulled up then there’s likely to be huge disruption for anyone flying in April. Even if the crazy legal situation of there being no basis for planes to fly is sorted within a week the airlines will take much longer than this to get their schedule straight again.
Since nobody knows it all depends how much of a gambler you are and what your personal predictions are for how things will go.
If you’re a pessimist then I wouldn’t risk booking a flight for summer at least.
If you’re an optimist then just live your life as you would if all this wasn’t happening.
