easyJet picks Vienna for post-Brexit ops

New company in Austria to protect its European business
UK budget carrier easyJet says it will set up a new company in Austria in an effort to protect its European business as Britain leaves the EU. The new airline, EasyJet Europe, will be based in Vienna.
The airline must have an air operator certificate in an EU country to keep flying between member states after Brexit. It says it hopes to receive its licence in the “near future”.
“Nothing will change” for passengers, however, while all crew and planes that will be part of EasyJet Europe are already employed across the continent.
In related news, the British TV channel ITV has appointed long-time easyJet boss Carolyn McCall as its new chief executive. McCall will start her new job early next year. She has been at easyJet for seven years.
