#AirBridges not for now but should not rule out in future – UK interior minister – EU Reporter

Britain should not rule out the idea of so-called air bridges with countries who have low infection rates of COVID-19 in the future, Interior Minister Priti Patel (pictured) said, write Estelle Shirbon and Alistair Smout.

The British government said it would bring in a 14-day quarantine period for almost all international arrivals from June 8.

Asked during the government’s daily news conference about the prospect of Britons being able to go on a summer holiday abroad this year and whether air bridges could be part of the solution, Patel said: “The foreign office advice is very clear, nothing but essential travel.”

“When it comes to air bridges … we should be absolutely open to all ideas, this is not for today but this doesn’t mean we should rule this out in the future,” she said.
