Countdown to green list reshuffle begins - siga ao vivo
Traffic light reshuffle expected next week

Itália has extended quarentena até 30 August for British arrivals, in a blow to turistas.

The news comes just days after the UK agreed to drop quarantine for fully jabbed arrivals from the EU and the US.

Britânicos arriving in Italy will need to provide a negative Covid test result and self-isolate for five days, in a continuation of the current quarantine rules.

Enquanto isso, the transport secretary said this morning it was essential to have “painful” travel restrictions and a cautious approach to countries such as France to avoid the spread of a coronavirus variant that vaccinations might be less effective against.

“I’m looking forward to the whole world being more accessible,” Grant Shapps told Sky. “We’re moving in the right direction.”

The next traffic light reshuffle is expected next Wednesday or Thursday.


IAG reports continued slump

IAG, the parent company of British Airways, flew just 22 por cento de 2019 passengers in the first six months of this year – with the majority of seats empty on flights that did take off.

In its half-year results the Anglo-Spanish firm, which also owns Iberia, Vueling e Aer Lingus of Ireland, blames “government restrictions and quarantine requirements” for the continued slump in aviation.

In the three months from April to June 2021, IAG made an operating loss of €967m (£826m), corresponding to over £9m per day.

Its half-year loss was €2,035 (£1,738m), with just 49.2 per cent of seats filled.
