Passports and details after Brexit

Hello everyone, 

Please find below some updated advise issued by the government - 

Brexit Notes –

Ahead of the current planned deadline date for the UK withdrawal from European Union  on 29 March, the government have issued the following advice in the event of leaving the EU without a deal:

After 29 March 2019:

  1. You should have at least 6 months left on your passport from your date of arrival. This applies to adult and child passports.
  2. If you renewed a passport before it expired, up to 9 extra months may have been added to your new passport’s expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months that should be remaining for travel to most countries in Europe.

Further information can be found on the following official website  

Please take time to check your passport carefully.   Other than this advice there will be no changes to your holiday and we plan to operate all future holidays as normal.

Thank you for your attention, and have a great holiday with Friendship Travel when the time comes.

Thanks Colum

I booked the Raga hotel in Turkey yesterday, so no need to worry as Turkey is outside the EU :) 

i am sure you have to have 6 monrhs on your passport on return date when you have travelled to turkey because they are not in the eu ! colum can you confirm this ?

Yes that is correct, you need 6 months left on your passport for Turkey.

Generally we would advise , wherever you travel to, have at least 6 months left on your passport. 

My understanding is it’s not your holiday destination thats important, if in EU or not, it’s potentially the  route the planes take/if they get authority to use other countries air space etc. I could be wrong but this is what my cabin crew pals have been saying. I’m sure it will all be fine.

All the ailrines which we operate with have licenses to operate in EU and all flights would operate as planned


Will flights still operate if a No Deal Brexit .. A good article here tells you the answer
