Since the international travel changes implemented on 11 February, the UK now has one of the most open and streamlined COVID-19 border regimes in the world. While the recovery has begun, many challenges remain. That is why, in addition to the regular monitoring of key recovery metrics, the Government continues to engage with businesses across the travel sector to understand ongoing challenges to growth and recovery. The Government is also working on a strategic framework for the aviation sector which will focus on building back better and ensuring a successful UK sector for the future.
