IATA expresses 'growing concern' about politicisation of quarantine measures

27 May, 2020

IATA director general and CEO Alexandre de Juniac said (26-May-2020) the industry has a "growing concern" about the "politicisation of quarantine measures" that some governments are putting in place. He highlighted the decision of France to put in place a 14 day quarantine measure for all arrivals from the UK, in response to the UK's blanket application of a 14 day quarantine on all international arrivals. Mr de Juniac called for measures to be "guided by science, not politics" and called tit-for-tat quarantine measures "unacceptable". [more - original PR]
