Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, was positive about the prospect of international travel resuming, saying: “We believe that a framework can be put in place for the safe reopening of travel and a strong summer, and we are currently focused on working with the UK Government Travel Task Force in the coming days and weeks.
"We are hopeful that progress will continue to be made with the vaccination programmes in Europe, with several countries having indicated they will be welcoming British tourists this summer.
“We remain of the view that international travel can restart and that, with the right framework in place, restrictions can be safely and progressively reduced and in some cases removed by mid-summer for key destinations.”
