The UK Government is starting preparations for trade negotiations with Canada and Mexico to upgrade our existing trade deals.  These negotiations are led by the Department for International Trade (DIT) with input from DfT on the transport aspects, including the following auxiliary air transport services:

  • Aircraft repair and maintenance
  • Airport operations
  • Selling and marketing of air transport
  • Ground handling
  • Computer Reservation Systems
  • Speciality air services

The UK signed Trade Continuity Agreements with both Canada and Mexico before the end of the Transition Period and committed to start negotiating new Free Trade Agreements later this year. We are seeking your input on which aspects of current trading arrangements with Canada and Mexico we should look to improve or amend in our new, more ambitious deals. 

The Government is committed to negotiating new deals that are tailored to the needs of the whole of the UK and invite you to give your views via DIT’s Call for Input, which is open from 18 May to 12 July 2021.
