Many airlines call for the resumption of travel between the UK and the US



Aviation officials in the UK and the United States predict that Washington will lift restrictions as early as July 4, as the US government is aiming to vaccinate more people. 

The directors of all airlines operating routes between the UK and the US on June 7 called on the two countries to lift restrictions on transatlantic travel that enacted to prevent COVID-19.

 In a joint online news conference, the CEOs of airlines American Airlines, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and JetBlue Airways said that high vaccination rates in both countries indicate travel activities can be safely resumed after more than a year of restrictions.

 Aviation officials in the UK and the United States predict that Washington will lift restrictions as early as July 4, as the US government is aiming to vaccinate more people.

 Since March 2020, the US has banned nearly all non-US citizens who have been to the UK in the previous 14 days from entering the country.  Americans who have been to the UK will have to self-isolate for 10 days after returning to the US.

 The opening of the UK-US border to travel is essential for British Airways and British Virgin Atlantic, because these airlines do not benefit from the domestic tourism market recovering as in the US.

 Besides the UK, 26 Schengen area countries, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil are also on the US's restricted list.

 American Airlines CEO Doug Parker said the list "doesn't make much sense anymore" as people who have been vaccinated can travel safely.

 United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby said the airline could significantly increase operating capacity within four weeks if restrictions were lifted.

 It is peak season for UK-US travel now, he said, and every day that passes is a day wasted in the recovery process for airlines.

 The call comes as US President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will meet this week at the G7 meeting in Cornwall, England's Southwest.
