UK Government Indecisiveness sends Travel Industry into disarray What is absolutely clear is the UK Government has been completely indecisive when it comes to foreign travel. Foreign holidays are on, then they're off, you can book holidays, then you can't. Travel will be permitted from the 17th of May, but then, the government is not going to tell you how this can happen. The 'traffic light' idea was released in the usual way, through a Downing Street 'leak' the day before a Downing Street conference hosted by Boris Johnson.. The scheme, largely accepted by the travel industry was a...

Worldwide Airport Expansion There has been huge hype over the last year regarding airport "expansion" in the UK. Environmentalists claim airport expansion will make it impossible to reduce co2 they claim is causing climate change. Expansion in the UK is relatively small in comparison with that seen in the rest of the world. China is currently building new airports at a rate of 8 each year with a total of 74 new airport reportedly opened by the end of 2020. The building continues and Chengdu Tianfu airport due to open later this year is expected to handle in the region of 40 million...
