EASYJET AHEAD OF GREEN LIST WARNS UK RISKS BEING LEFT BEHIND IN TRAVEL

London.—The chief executive of easyJet said Britain was likely to be left behind the rest of Europe if the government does not allow quarantine-free travel to most of the continent when it announces where people can go on today. Britain is set to publish its “green list” of low risk places where people can travel without needing to quarantine on their return home, but reports suggest that just a handful of countries will make the list, with major destinations like Spain and Greece excluded. A limited list will be a blow to UK-based easyJet, whose home market is its biggest and which is counting on a big pick-up in travel to help repair its finances after a year of COVID-19 restrictions. Chief Executive Johan Lundgren told the FT Live online conference yesterday that with Europe opening up it would be ironic that the “UK, which has been the most advanced when it comes to the rollout of the vaccination programme, is actually going to find themselves left behind. “I think this is going to need to change, it’s going to need to change very rapidly,” he said. Smaller holiday destinations such as Gibraltar, Iceland, Israel and Malta are expected to make the green list, while airlines and travel companies are hoping that bigger markets like Portugal and the United States will also be on it. Returning to the UK from a green list country will involve taking two COVID-19 tests, one before arrival and one on or before the second day of returning. Britain has said that it will review travel plans again in late June, meaning that easyJet and competitors Ryanair, TUI, Jet2 and British Airways, could be forced to wait for a larger scale re-opening of UK travel.
