The EU has given airlines just seven months to sort out their shareholdings in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
According to The Financial Times, the EU has said that airlines wishing to retain their right to fly within the EU must have majority EU shareholders within seven months of March 29.

It is thought to have just 25% of its shares held by EU members. The FT also notes that there have been talks on extending more freedoms to all-cargo airlines.
