The Covid pandemic, and the need for the Government to respond to it, have clearly impacted the aviation and aerospace sectors.

The Government has therefore announced through the Global Travel Taskforce, a number of measures to assist the sector to restart over the winter period. This includes the ‘Test To Release for international travel’ (TTR) scheme, which was launched on 15 December and will boost consumer confidence in air travel.

Following the successful implementation of these measures, the government will then put forward its strategic framework for the medium and long term recovery of the aviation sector.
