Bristol Airport's response after the Government's announcement that pre-departure testing will no longer be required for travellers returning to the UK
Created: 5th Jan 2022
Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport said:
“We welcome the Government’s announcement today on the removal of pre-departure testing for travellers returning to the UK. The change will provide reassurance and confidence for customers wanting to visit family and friends, arrange a foreign business trip, or take a well-deserved holiday. It’s also a boost for our region’s inbound tourism businesses.
The Government should now quickly remove the remaining testing requirements – with Omicron now dominant in the UK, international travel restrictions no longer make any noticeable difference other than keeping family and friends separated from each other.”
