What is an air bridge?

An Air Bridge aka. Travel Corridor is an agreement set by the Government to allow travel between two countries, without the requirement to quarantine.

The Air-bridge agreements are set out by the two countries and will be those with low cases of Coronavirus. It allows two way travel without quarantine.

Gavin Shapps, Transport Secretary announced on the 25th June 2020 that Air-bridges would be implemented with countries who operate a Coronavirus Test and Trace System to the same standard as the United Kingdom.

At the same time, the Government also introduceda traffic-light system that will be used to rate other countries infection/death rates.

Green countries will be classed as safe when compared with the UK, amber countries would be less safe than Green. Red countries would be deemed as high risk.

What countries are part of the Air-Bridge scheme?

Initially, countries such as Spain, France and Italy had the first travel corridors set-up, but the Government has since removed Spain due to a spike in infection cases.

We recommend that you visit the Government website for more infroamtion on Air-Bridges.

Can I travel to the USA?

At this moment in time, there is not travel corridor between the UK and the USA and travel is for those returning to the USA.

Its important to read the government guidelines before booking any travel to countries not listed.
