Travel abroad this summer could still become a reality for holidaymakers. Government announce plans to create ‘air bridges’ with other countries.
The proposal, announced by Grant Schapps the Transport Secretary, means that the public would be able to travel to foreign countries and return without facing the two week quarantine that is expected to be announced this week for international arrivals.
The penalties for breaching these are between £1000 and £10,000. It has been feared that these regulations would end any realistic hopes of holidaying abroad this year, when you would have to add two weeks quarantine to your holiday. On Monday night Mr Schapps said that the plans would be renewed every three weeks and countries on similar levels of the virus would be allowed, raising hopes of agreements with Spain, Italy, France and Germany.
