Airlines UK respond to Scottish Government announcement on international travel – “This is a positive step forward, which must be accompanied by further progress”

July 13th, 2021

Commenting on the Scottish Government announcement made today on international travel, Tim Alderslade, CEO of Airlines UK, the industry body representing UK-registered carriers, said:


“This is a positive step forward that will provide much more opportunity for families to travel this summer season, and offer greater certainty and reassurance to our passengers looking to get away. It must, however, in short time be accompanied by further progress on the Green list, opening up many more countries to quarantine-free travel for everyone, as well as testing – with the Scottish Government providing more and cheaper options for post-arrival tests. Travel this summer must be within reach and affordable for all, not just the wealthy.”
