easyJet has accelerated talks on setting up an aircraft operating license in a different EU country following Britain's vote to leave the European Union, but says the industry's fundamentals remain strong.

"It is business as usual. We have to spend a little more time formalising conversations we've had and thinking through the next steps," Carolyn McCall told Reuters news agency.

Should Britain be able to agree access to the single market following Brexit, nothing will change for airlines, but easyJet wants to prepare for all eventualities.

"We have to be in control of our own destiny, so we will do the work," McCall said.

"Until we have the government to take us forward in the UK, we can't expect much change," she added.
