UK will ditch travel quarantine for 75 countries, Daily Telegraph says

LONDON (Reuters) - The British government will effectively ditch its air bridge plans and simply end the coronavirus quarantine rules for those arriving from 75 countries so that people can go on holiday, The Daily Telegraph reported.

 

The newspaper said the UK would shortly lift a ban on non-essential travel to nearly all EU destinations, the British territories including Bermuda and Gibraltar, and Turkey, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand.

 

A spokesman for the transport ministry declined immediate comment.

 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government has been grappling with how to open up international travel after it imposed a 2-week quarantine for arrivals, which has added to the woes of the shuttered tourism and travel industry.

 

Britain said on Friday that it would ditch a 14-day quarantine period for people arriving from countries such as France, Greece and Spain.

 

Simon Clarke, a junior housing, communities and local government minister, said the government was working on an announcement on travel.

 

"We will provide this announcement as soon as it is safe," Clarke told Sky. "We will be talking further about this this week."

 

"Clearly we want to get the tourism sector back on its feet as quickly as we can and I'm sure that we will be able to give good news in the near future," he said.

Still waiting for confirmation and I'm not booking any flights to Spain until it's announced. I want to go to Munich next month and possibly Berlin. It's that little Hitler in Edinburgh holding things up!

We will simply put up checkpoints on the border to keep the contagion out then you can do whatever you like elsewhere.

The Scottish First Minister has effectively scuppered the whole idea. Reported in today's BBC news. So much for the Supremacy of the UK Parliament, in Westminster.

I don't see it on the BBC app, but if true, it makes a pleasant change for the agenda to be set by Scottish considerations. 

What about the 55 million in England who want to go on holiday.

Just been banned on The Guardian for calling Sturgeon a retard. She should stop meddling in UK government matters.

you were probably banned for being too kind to her. The woman is a chancer and thinks she can get Independence by screwing up the whole of the UK's post Covid plans.  She may yet be proved right.
