Airlines turn against covid restrictions!

Pre-trip tests, quarantines on arrival and certificates cannot become the new normal for travel, the lobbying organisation Airlines4Europe (A4E) insisted at its annual summit on Thursday.

The various major European aviation groups that make up the organisation (Ryanair, easyJet, IAG, Lufthansa and Air France-KLM) have also called for the gradual lifting of all pandemic-related travel restrictions in the European Union.

“The science is clear: it is already possible to travel safely and unrestricted on many intra-EU flights, and this will only increase as the vaccine is rolled out,” said Johan Lundgren, CEO of low-cost carrier easyJet.

“We all have a responsibility, including European governments, to ensure that travel in Europe is accessible and affordable for all,” he added.
