The Government must “urgently” set out its roadmap for the return of international travel, a group of MPs have demanded.
In an interim report, the cross-party Transport Select Committee urged the officials to reveal “when and how the current quarantine schemes will be phased out”. It added that the aviation industry, which has been largely grounded for the past year, “thrives on certainty” and “redundancies have mounted” as the return of travel overseas “continues to be delayed”.
“In order to return passenger aircraft to the skies and to connect the UK to the world, a roadmap to restart international travel is urgently needed”, reads the report. “The Department [for Transport] has not yet specified the standards that destination countries must meet on vaccine and testing capabilities in order to reopen for travel with the UK.”
Since early January it has been illegal to go on holiday and, according to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown, the earliest that people in England can travel abroad for “non-essential” reasons is May 17.
Since February 15, arrivals into the country from “red-listed” destinations have been forced to quarantine in a hotel at a cost of up to £1,750 per person. Last week the chief executive of budget airline Ryanair, Michael O’Leary, told MPs labelled hotel quarantine a “PR start” that is “shambolic and ineffective”.
The Government’s Global Travel Taskforce is due to release its plans for the reopening international travel on April 12.

France eases Covid restrictions on international travellers
France will ease some restrictions on international travel outside of the EU, the foreign ministry said on Thursday.
The ministry said in a statement that travellers to or from Britain, Australia, South Korea, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, and Singapore would no longer have to need a compelling reason to travel.
All other restrictions, such as a requirement for a negative Covid-19 test less than 72 hours before travel, would remain in place, the ministry said, adding a decree was due to be published on March 12.
