Interesting post quoted from another well known aviation forum, commenting on the flybmi insolvency- fair use excerpt:

For the people here who dismiss the Brexit as a major reason for their downfall: believe me, it's true. I own an air charter company in continental Europe (charter brokerage) and we most certainly avoid chartering a/c from UK airlines for contracts beyond March - and this not just our choice: our clients are willing to pay more for a non UK based a/c. It is all because we have no idea how legally all is going to play out AND because we don't know if airlines will be around long enough to actually operate the flights. ... Sorry pro leavers: there will be serious consequences for leaving the EU, as aviation is not the only industry this is happening in...
