Government testing announcement - comment 

Commenting on the Government’s announcement of a Test and Release scheme in England to shorten the quarantine period for international arrivals, Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive of London City Airport, said:

“After some of the most difficult months in the history of our industry, today’s announcement from Government on a test and release process to reduce quarantine is most welcome and shows that there is now some light at the end of the tunnel. In particular, it is great news for passengers around the world planning their journeys back to the UK to see their loved ones for Christmas.
It is now vital that the UK Government, international partners and industry work together to capitalise on this positive momentum and establish a fast and cost-effective screening protocol that removes the requirement for quarantine altogether.”
