Easyjet , really, has just done the same thing. This is a tangible example of the Brexit impact, and it won't be the last.

"All of easyJet's UK employees will continue to be based in Luton and our 11 UK bases and employed as they are today," the firm said.

"Given the importance of aviation to all the economies of Europe as an enabler of trade, tourism and travel, we think it is important that the aviation market remains as open and competitive as possible.

"While the new structure will protect all of easyJet's current flying rights within Europe, easyJet will continue to push for the UK and EU to reach an aviation agreement which, at a minimum, will enable flights between the UK and EU."

UK ministers have said maintaining "liberal access" to European aviation markets will be a "top priority" during the Brexit negotiations which got under way in June.

Under present rules, airlines operating within the EU must be majority owned by EU nationals. EasyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou and his family hold Cypriot passports and own 33% of shares in the business.
