WTTC Welcomes | UK Plan To Scrap Most Covid Rules
LONDON: The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) welcomed the latest announcement from the UK government about ending most Covid-19 restrictions on 19 July.
It will give a much-needed boost to travel businesses across the country but it called for a clear pathway to allow as-yet unvaccinated people to travel safely and affordably.
“After more than a year of lockdowns and severe restrictions, this is great news, and we welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment to allow those who are double-jabbed to avoid quarantine after returning from an amber list country,” Virginia Messina, WTTC Senior Vice President said.
“However, we hope the UK government will not leave behind those who are not fully vaccinated, and ensure there is a plan in place to make international travel for those people, as stress-free and as cost-effective as possible.”
“Reopening international travel will give businesses up and down the country a much-needed lifeline,” Messina added.
