UK What Manchester Airport passengers need to know as Brits get travel green light last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- From Monday, UK residents will be able to start travelling abroad again, as part of the Government's traffic light system
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Non-essential international will finally resume next week, as the latest easing of lockdown restrictions is set to go ahead. As sun-seeking passengers prepare to jet off once again, Manchester Airport has devised a handy list of guidance and information to help holidaymakers get prepared. From Monday (17 March), UK residents will be able to start travelling abroad again, as part of the Government's traffic light system. Currently, there are 12 countries on the Green List - which will only require travellers to take one post-arrival test, and avoid having to quarantine on their return. It consists of Portugal, Gibraltar, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, plus several small remote islands that are British Overseas Territories. The Amber List of countries, which Brits are advised not to travel to at the moment, include destinations such as Spain, France, Italy and Greece. Those who go against that guidance must take two post-arrival tests. They are also required to self-isolate at home for 10 days, although they can reduce that time if they take an additional negative test on day-five. All flights from Manchester Airport are still operating in and out of Terminal One (Image: Julian Hamilton/Daily Mirror) Among the countries on the red list are Brazil, India, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates. Those returning from a red list country must stay in a quarantine hotel for 11 nights at a cost of £1,750. All flights from Manchester Airport are still operating in and out of Terminal One, as the airport will still not be operating at full capacity as of next week. Thankfully for holidaymakers, shops, restaurants and bars will all be re-opening on Monday, so passengers can make time for their obligatory pre-flight pint. Travellers returning to the UK are also reminded that they will need to fill in a passenger locater form prior to travel, regardless of their destination. Failure to do this can delay their time at immigration. This process is managed by UK Border Force and forms can be found here.

"We understand many people haven’t flown in a long time due to the pandemic, but I’d like to reassure all our customers as we continue to implement the highest quality Covid-19 safety measures across Manchester Airport. "I’d like also to thank all our passengers for abiding by the measures in place during these uncertain times, and also thank all our staff who have gone above and beyond to ensure safe travel for all. "As we start the road to recovery, we will continue to work closely with all our partners across the airport to ensure passengers have the best possible experience as they fly off on well-earned holidays or finally get to see family and friends. "We will also continue to work closely with government to unlock a more meaningful restart for international travel, by taking advantage of the UK's vaccination programme to increase the number of countries on the green list and work towards the removal of restrictions altogether over time."
