A coalition of more than 500 travel firms says they are watching British Airways’ threat of legal action over the UK’s quarantine on arrival policy "with keen interest".
Red Savannah chief executive and "quash quarantine" campaign leader George Morgan-Grenville told TTG on Monday (8 June) the group was "taking soundings" from members ahead of its next move.
It is believed options could include a judicial review, challenging the 14-day self-isolation on arrival policy which came into force at 12.01am on Monday.
Campaign backers include Abercrombie & Kent, Club Med UK, Mark Warner and Kuoni, and represent more than £10 billion in annual sales.
“There are more holes than in a sieve in this unworkable, poorly-thought through and economically damaging government policy," said Morgan-Grenville.
"The government has rushed through these measures, with no scientific evidence supported by its Sage advisory group and no consultation with the travel companies that matter.
"We are taking soundings and discussing our next move. We are watching the BA legal action with keen interest.”
