The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that foreign holidays should be allowed after May 17.
The UK PM said leisure travel overseas could restart in May, alongside the reopening of hotels and B&Bs across England.
It is up to the devolved governments to make a decision on reopening dates for travel and tourism and the Northern Ireland Executive are expected to make an announcement on their own pathway to recovery later this week.
Addressing the House of Commons Boris Johnson said a successor to the Global Travel Taskforce will report by April 12 so that people can ‘plan for summer’, but it will resume no earlier than May 17.
Boris Johnson said the April 12 deadline for the Travel Taskforce will give people time to ‘make their plans for the summer’.
“If we can meet these dates there’s every chance of an aviation recovery later this year,” he said.
