From May 17, the UK will allow residents to travel internationally, but because the UK has carefully relaxed its closure measures, it can only travel in multiple destinations.
Transport Minister Grant Shapps said Portugal, Israel, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore are on the green travel list of the system, which is updated every three weeks. Popular destinations such as France, Spain and Greece are not yet on the green list.
Southern European airlines, travel agencies and tourist destinations have been waiting for more than four months before the British can start traveling, but they must wait a few months before they can fully start traveling.
Spain, France, Italy and the United States are the four most visited countries in the UK in 2019 and are excluded. They belong to the same category as Croatia, and those who travel to these countries must isolate themselves after returning to the UK.
Although the UK has been banned from traveling abroad for no reason since the beginning of January, despite the restrictions on overseas travel permits, the growth of the disaster-affected sector is gratifying.
British Airways, EasyJet, Ryanair, TUI and other airlines may have to wait until next month to reopen larger aircraft, which is what they need to recover their finances.
Some people believe that the UK vaccination plan, which has surpassed the rest of Europe, should soon allow more travel, but the EU is currently opening up more vaccines.
In view of the high vaccination rate, the IAG chief executive of British Airways (IAC) called on the United Kingdom and the United States to open a “travel bubble” earlier on Friday.
