"BRITS WILL BE ABLE TO HOLIDAY IN SPAIN WITH NO QUARANTINE IN UK FROM JULY 4TH"
UK Government talks of 'air bridges' have been successful, and non-quarantined travel with ten countries will start on July 4th.
Boris Johnson will give the green light to foreign holidays next Monday, when the Government unveils its long-awaited travel corridor plan.
UK Ministers will say that Britons can visit any one of around ten countries without having to quarantine, reviving summer holidays after almost four months of travel restrictions.
'Air bridges' to France, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey have been all but confirmed, with the first flights set to take off on July 4th.
British holidaymakers, can and are, already taking advantage of the sun in Spain, as the FCO 'essential travel' is only advice and not a law, so some have already hit the beaches of Tenerife, Majorca, and Benidorm among others, knowing they will have to quarantine on their return.
But that will all change on July 4th when coming to the Canary Islands, mainland Spain and the Balearics.
Other destinations including France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Gibraltar and Bermuda will also reportedly be announced as destinations in the first round of 'safe nations' on June 29th.
Although arrival numbers have still been low so far, Aena have reported that all passengers on all international flights since June 21st, when our borders opened, have passed temperature tests, thermal imaging, and haven't shown any signs of coronavirus symptoms on arrival, and no-one has been required to go for a full test as yet.
Although the UK Government are promoting 'staycations', many are preferring to be on a beach abroad than at home, and take advantage of cheap flights and accommodation offers as hotels start to open, or in private villas and apartments.
Although not everything is open yet, and not all will be during summer, this doesn't seem to be a deterrent as most just want to 'get away' after four very strange months in the UK.
