Tweets of the day:

‏@CAPA_Aviation BMI regional: aviation Brexit questions aren’t just about airlines. Remember aerospace sector: Airbus, Rolls-Royce, etc. #ACTECAPA16.

@CAPA_Aviation CityJet: we expect Brexit impact on short- and long-haul, but especially long-haul. #ACTECAPA16.

@CAPA_Aviation CityJet is cautious on the Brexit outlook. “We don’t know what’s around the corner…how much further sterling will slide.” #ACTECAPA16.

@CAPA_Aviation  CityJet: Brexit effect so far is currency. Pound down 20%, and we report in euros. No fall in volume yet #ACTECAPA16.

@CAPA_Aviation Will aviation be a pawn in UK-EU27 Brexit negotiations? First or last item to be negotiated? #ACTECAPA16.

@CAPA_Aviation Iceland’s WOW Air observes passengers are using Kayak and Skyscanner to have self-connecting itineraries onto WOW #ACTECAPA16.
