The Quash Quarantine group says it will reconsider legal action against the government if Downing Street makes public the campaign’s private assurances of air bridges being introduced at the end of the month.
In its latest statement, the group representing more than 500 travel and hospitality companies, said it had been told by “senior government sources” that travel corridors would be in place by 29 June.
“We urge the government to signal to the travel industry publicly and urgently that this is the case, as well as amend Foreign Office advice on non-essential travel,” said campaign spokesperson and PC Agency chief executive, Paul Charles.
Charles said Quash Quarantine was “still considering our options regarding legal action” including whether to join British Airways claim – which has been backed by Ryanair and easyJet – or whether to launch its own.
He said the group would prefer the 29 June date “is confirmed as soon as possible”, adding: “The industry needs urgent visibility on a timetable for travel to begin again.”
