Manchester Airport Group Statement - international travel system The simplification of the UK’s international travel system, including doing away with pre-departure tests and switching to lateral flow on arrival, will make it easier and cheaper for people to travel abroad.

But for as long as vaccinated travellers have to pay for tests, the recovery of one of the UK’s major industries will be held back...

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...

Aviation urgently needs a flight plan for recovery after de facto border closure Passenger volumes down 89% in January as the national lockdown, travel bans, blanket quarantine and compulsory testing deterred people from travelling. The additional inconvenience and cost of quarantine hotels, day2/day 8 testing requirements on top of other measures mean that the UK’s borders are effectively closed. We are working with the Government to try to ensure this complex scheme is workable. Fewer long-haul passenger flights meant that cargo volume was down 21% in January – a key indicator of...

Largely grounded route network continues to strangle UK economy Over 860,000 passengers travelled through Heathrow in July, down 88% on the previous year. This reflects a slight uplift in passenger traffic, since the start of this crisis, driven by the Government’s creation of the first ‘travel corridors’ on July 4th. More than half of these passengers, over 480,000, ventured to European destinations to make the most of the 2020 summer season, quarantine free. The vast majority of Heathrow’s route network (60%) remains grounded, requiring a 14-day quarantine on arrival, preventing the...
