German airline TUIfly has denied reports that it may link up with UK airline easyJet.

Reports have suggested that easyJet may buy a stake in TUIfly to maintain an EU operating certificate allowing freedom to operate anywhere in the bloc, after the UK’s Brexit vote.

TUIfly did not comment on supervisory board member Martin Locher saying on Friday that the company was looking at a deal with a second European carrier. He did not name the airline.

TUIfly offers charter and scheduled flights for its parent, TUI group, and to other travel agencies.
