CBI welcomes international travel policy change

The CBI has welcomed the latest round of changes to international travel rules – a welcome step forward for the sector as it looks ahead “with hopeful eyes” for a return to normal this year.

“Scrapping testing for vaccinated travellers entering the UK will provide a much-needed lift in passenger confidence and allow customers to book with renewed certainty,” said chief policy director of the business group, Matthew Fell.

“The government must now clearly set out how it will help the sector live with future variants and maintain passenger confidence, avoiding the oscillation we have seen between freedom and restriction since the outset of the pandemic. This should include the timescales for any shift to incorporate third jabs/booster shots into the definition of fully vaccinated.

“Demand will also not return overnight and government and industry must work together to draw up a long-term plan for future stability within a sector of vital importance to regional connectivity and Global Britain.”
