  • The Government will today reveal a list of up to 60 countries exempt from a UK quarantine, effectively giving the go-ahead for overseas holidays this summer.
  • The news will be welcomed by the travel and tourism industry, as well as English holidaymakers keen to get away this summer, although some have vented frustration at the way the Government has communicated its plans in recent weeks.
  • The TSSA, an independent trade union for the transport and travel trade industries with thousands of members across the UK and Ireland, has accused the Government of a ‘quarantine fiasco,’ after plans for air bridges from individual countries to and from Britain were thrown into doubt.
