Airlines UK response to latest Red list update

October 7th, 2021

Commenting on the latest Red list update, Airlines UK, the industry body representing UK-registered carriers, said:

“We welcome the significant reduction of the Red list as another positive step towards normalising air travel and reopening our sector. This builds on recent changes that have seen travel to many more countries become easier and cheaper for passengers, progress we hope towards removing all test requirements for the fully vaccinated as soon as possible.

However, it is disappointing for our customers to have no definitive clarity yet on when the lateral flow changes will be introduced. With the crucial October half-term just two weeks away we urgently need clarity so that passengers can plan ahead. This is the key booking period between now and Christmas, so time is of the essence.”
