Matthew Fell, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:
“The latest travel rule changes will bring little respite to the international travel industry. Public health must rightly be the first consideration, but the industry is left in a holding pattern while other nations with lower vaccination rates speed ahead.
“As the UK learns to live with the virus, changes will have to come. The Government must turn its attention to establishing a longer-term system for safe travel which is truly risk-based.
“This means focusing on individual vaccination status rather than country status, simplifying any lingering restrictions and ending PCR test requirements for double-jabbed travelers and journeys to green list countries.”
