Major airlines call on the US to ease travel restrictions against COVID-19



Major airlines are calling on the US government to quickly make a decision to ease restrictions against the COVID-19 epidemic, which ban passengers in most European countries and other places from entering the US.

On June 7, leaders of some major airlines as well as chief executive officers (CEOs) of Heathrow Airport (UK) and airlines of the American Travel Association will hold a live press conference to promote the removal of travel restrictions between the US and the UK.  Attending the press conference were the CEOs of American Airlines, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and JetBlue Airways.  Previously, on May 11, the CEOs of airlines called for a high-level meeting between US, UK and airlines officials to discuss quickly "re-opening transatlantic travel.".

Since March 2020, the US has banned nearly all non-US passengers who have been in the UK within the last 14 days from entering the country.  Most US visitors to the UK must self-isolate for 10 days from arrival.  Previously, aviation officials had hoped that by the end of May, the US would lift travel restrictions for the UK and Ireland, where the number of new cases of COVID-19 has fallen sharply recently.  The measures also apply to most non-US citizens in Brazil, South Africa, India and Iran.

It is expected that from June 9, France will receive US citizens who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.  United Airlines announced it would resume flights from Washington to Paris next July, while Delta Air Lines said it would add flights to France.
