Travel restrictions removal step forward to aviation recovery

Commenting on the Government’s announcement to remove all remaining travel restrictions, Airport Operators Association Chief Executive Karen Dee said:

“A return to restriction-free travel is good news for passengers and should allow aviation to take significant steps towards recovery. People should feel encouraged to book their long-awaited holidays, trips to see relatives and friends abroad that they haven’t seen for a long time and travel to rekindle business ties with other countries.

“Recovery is not a given, however and with the rising cost of living, the rise in fuel prices and the uncertainty following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there remain potentially significant headwinds for UK airports as they seek to attract travellers back.”
