WTTC: Rapid testing on departure at airports is the key to unlocking international travel

    World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), in a submission to the UK‘s Global Travel Taskforce, stated (30-Mar-2021) rapid testing on departure at airports is the key to unlocking international travel. The body said that while the vaccine roll-out in the UK is to be applauded, the travel & tourism sector cannot wait for every member of the public to be vaccinated. Instead, WTTC has urged the government’s Global Travel Taskforce to focus on a combination of vaccines, testing, digital health passes and health and safety protocols, such mandatory face mask wearing, as the way to unlocking the door to travel. WTTC has also strongly advocated the UK government shift its risk assessment from entire countries to that of the individual ‘high-risk’ traveller, to more quickly enable the return of safe travelling.
