Responding to the Government’s announcement of the initial travel green list for overseas destinations, ADS Chief Executive Kevin Craven said:

“Confirmation of the partial reopening of international travel on May 17 is small step forward that builds on the success of the UK’s vaccination programme. However, travel to and from the UK remains severely restricted, leaving our aviation and aerospace industries heavily impacted by the ongoing crisis.

“In the coming weeks we hope to see more countries added to the green list, action from Government to further cut testing costs and a clear pathway created for internationally recognised COVID certification that removes the remaining quarantine requirements.”
