EASYJET’S boss has said that a deal can be worked out between the EU and the UK post-Brexit as it would be “beneficial to both economies”.

Sophie Dekkers, the firm’s UK country director, has said she is optimistic about a bespoke deal being agreed in the upcoming negotiations to leave the EU.

She dismissed concerns airspace would be a sticking point, claiming that an arrangement would be beneficial to both unions.

She said: “The risk of reduced access is a technical problem, but I think it will be solved because it’s in the interest of both parties.

“There are a number of EU airlines that are lobbying from their side on it, so Air France, KLM and Lufthansa … it’s in their interest to have access to the UK market, too.”
