Air Bridge Announcement Expected by June 29

Transport Secretary Grant Snapps has said that details of air bridges will be announced "on or by" June 29

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has told parliament’s transport committee he was deep in negotiations about air bridges and details would be announced “on or by” June 29.

He said: “We want to make sure we are not re-infected either by Brits going abroad and coming back or people coming from those areas. The quarantine is serving that purpose, but we’re also aware there are areas where the virus is more under control and we are having conversations and I will be saying more about that on or by the 29th.”

He confirmed that countries would be chosen “on scientifically-based” criteria.
