A Spanish diplomat said an agreement on airlines` landing rights for flights between the EU and the UK during the Brexit negotiations would not apply to Gibraltar International Airport.  However, from 2018-2019, all flights to and from the UK or Morocco (not affected by Brexit) and no flights to the EU. As an alternative, Malaga Airport (125 kilometres distance) offers many flights from the EU. In November, the European Union and the United Kingdom concluded the terms of an orderly uk withdrawal agreement from the European Union. Gibraltar was part of that agreement. The withdrawal agreement includes a transition period until the end of 2020, including in Gibraltar. The EU and the UK have reached an agreement on the withdrawal agreement with a revised protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland (abolition of the «backstop») and a revised political declaration. On the same day, the European Council (Article 50) approved these texts.
Gibraltar`s position in the process of the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union raises concrete questions during the negotiations. Gibraltar voted strongly in favour of remaining in the European Union in the referendum and its unique situation could lead to difficulties in the Brexit negotiations, with Spaniards telling Gibraltar that online gambling, offshore banking and duty-free trade are no longer part of the internal market for Gibraltar`s economy. This triggered Article 50 of the Treaty on the European Union, which defines the procedure for the withdrawal of an EU member state, thus opening a two-year countdown to withdrawal. The impact of Brexit on Gibraltar concerns the status of Gibraltar after the UK leaves the European Union.

Gibraltar is not part of the United Kingdom, but unlike all other British overseas territories, part of the European Union was like the United Kingdom. She took part in the Brexit referendum and, after the UK left, ceased to be part of the EU after the UK left. Instrument relating to the agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community After Brexit, some agreements apply during the transition period.
