UK announces list of international holiday destinations amid expected uptick in jet demand (Waar kan ik heen?)
The UK government has announced which countries English holiday-makers will be able to visit without quarantining on their return, those on the so-called green list, amid projections of steady improvement in jet fuel uptake later in the year.
The Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish governments have not said when they will ease their travel restrictions.
Portugal, Gibraltar and Israel are among only 12 countries or territories on the green list, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said in a press conference May 7.
Some of the others are Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Iceland, Faroe Islands and the Falkland Islands. Many popular European destinations including Greece, France, Spain and Italy are on the amber list, the government said in a press release.
Turkey, the Maldives and Nepal have been added to the red list, Shapps said. Countries on each of the lists will be reviewed every three weeks, he added.
