UK airlines respond to publication of health guidance for aviation

June 11th, 2020

Responding to the publication of Government health guidance on air travel, Tim Alderslade, CEO of Airlines UK, the industry association representing UK-registered carriers, said:

“Having worked in partnership with Government on their development, UK airlines welcome the introduction of these guidelines. They demonstrate how airlines can apply targeted and multi-layered measures to ensure air travel is safe for customers and crew.

“The guidelines pave the way for the introduction of air bridges, and there is no reason we shouldn’t be getting clarity from Government on when and how these will be established over the coming days.”
