Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “UK Covid-19: Boris Johnson says UK-US travel will open ‘in time for Thanksgiving'” – below is their description.
Bookings surged by more than 90 per cent within an hour of the President’s (left) announcement and airlines’ share prices rocketed. The White House will lift the 18-month blanket ban on foreign travellers – introduced by Donald Trump – for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Prime Minister Boris Johnson (right) said he was ‘delighted’ President Biden was ‘reinstating transatlantic travel’. He also said it will be ‘great that family and friends on both sides of the pond can be reunited once again’. Britain dropped restrictions on fully-vaccinated US visitors in July as a ‘goodwill gesture’. But, to the concern of ministers and anger of the travel industry, the US had not reciprocated. Today’s decision was welcomed by the travel sector, as aviation chiefs said air links between the two countries are ‘part of the bedrock of the global economy’.Daily Mail YouTube Channel
