Today, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced that fully vaccinated arrivals into the UK from amber list countries will no longer be required to self-isolate from July 19.

Passengers will continue to be asked to take tests in the days before and after travelling.

ADS Chief Executive Kevin Craven said

“Allowing fully vaccinated travellers arriving from amber list countries to avoid self-isolation is a very important step to restoring the UK’s essential global connections.

“This announcement builds on the hugely successful vaccination programme and will be welcome news to aviation and aerospace employers.

“There is more needed to enable a full return to international travel, as restrictions will remain in place when the wider economy fully reopens later this month. We hope to see continued progress on reopening key travel routes including vital links with the US, cutting the cost of passenger testing, and establishing international recognition of Covid certification for travellers.”
