Air Bridges could be coming soon to the UK

The British government is said to be finalising the details on a number of 'air Bridges or safe corridors to and from a number of European nations this evening.  The instigation of these bridges will mean new arrivals will not have to undergo the 14-day self-quarantine period.

Whilst the full details have yet to be agreed and released, we understand the countries to get an air bridge are Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Turkey.

Portugal had been expected to join the list, however, a new outbreak in the Lisbon area has delayed its inclusion according to those close to Number 10.

There is no time scale for the announcement yet or when the air bridges will be enacted, however, certain correspondents indicate sources have told them to expect the announcement to come this weekend with the air bridges to start a week on Saturday the 4th of July.  A day coinciding with the general relaxation of lockdown rules in the UK. 

British Airways is still pursuing legal action against the government over the 14 day quarantine period, with sources telling us the airline has already spent £2.4 million on legal fees and administration.
