Let’s get Britain flying again!

Daily Mail campaign supports the travel industry.

Last Friday, the news brand launched a campaign calling on ministers to kick start travel by introducing a coronavirus testing regime.

The new regime will ‘Get Britain Flying Again’ and at the same time, save thousands of jobs.

EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren is the latest business chief to back the Get Britain Flying Again initiative, saying there is ‘still time to rescue airline industry’ with COVID-19 tests at UK airport borders.

Mr Lundgren told the Mail: ‘The first step is to put in place a cutting edge science based regime for quarantine and travel and we need testing in place for those who travel from the red zones. This is just common sense.’

An incredible array of business chiefs have pledged support for the campaign, including: Paul Everitt, chief executive of aerospace and defence industry body ADS; Tim Alderslade, chief executive Airlines UK; Warren East, chief executive Rolls Royce; Karen Dee, chief executive Airport Operators Association; John Holland-Kaye chief executive Heathrow Airport; Professor Sir John Bell Regius chair of medicine Oxford University and MPs including Sir Graham Brady, Henry Smith, former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
