ABTA responds to Government announcement on international travel restart and traffic light list

Published on : Saturday, May 8, 2021

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA – The Travel Association said:

“Although it was good to hear the Minister say he wants people to be able to travel this summer, this is a slower and more cautious approach than previously outlined by the Government and will delay the industry’s recovery. We understand that public health is the Government’s priority, and it was always expected that the return to international travel would be gradual, but the Government must use the next review to open up travel to more destinations, using the traffic light system to manage risk.

“We also need the Government to commit to supporting travel agents and tour operators through what will continue to be difficult times ahead. Travel will be one of the most restricted economic sectors coming out of the pandemic and this needs to be recognised through adequate grants to support these businesses.”
