The government is reportedly preparing to announce a "small number" of air bridge agreements later this month.
Citing a government source, The Telegraph reports the UK’s first air bridges will be announced on 29 June, the same day the UK’s quarantine policy is due for its first review.
The regime is then expected to come into effect from 4 July.
Air bridges are bilateral arrangements with countries with lower rates of coronavirus infection, which would allow British holidaymakers to forgo the UK’s 14-day quarantine on arrival requirement when they come home.
Portugal and Greece are expected to be among early accessible destinations.
Speaking during a government coronavirus press briefing earlier this week, prime minister Boris Johnson confirmed talks over air bridges were ongoing when pressed on hints from France and Spain they will enact reciprocal arrangements with the UK – which would currently mean quarantine on arrival.
