BRUSSELS (Reuters) – A lack of clarity over Brexit is a frustration for European airlines but not a concern as carriers should be able to manage even if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal, IAG chief executive Willie Walsh said on Wednesday.

“I don’t think it’s concern that we’ve expressed — it’s frustration … We do really need the politicians to resolve this,” Walsh said at the Airline for Europe summit in Brussels.

“The industry manages (these uncertainties) better than any other industry … I’m fairly confident that IAG and other airlines will be able to manage this situation whatever happens.”
