Quarantine rules a 'killer blow' for travel sector

The boss of the UK's biggest airport services company Swissport has warned quarantine rules could deliver a "Killer blow" to the travel sector. Mr O'Leary said most countries in Europe have a lower rate of coronavirus than the UK. At a time when "Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal are removing visitor restrictions, the UK is imposing them," he told the BBC. Swissport's Mr Holt questioned why the rules were being put in place now. More than 200 travel companies have written to the government asking for the new rules to be scrapped, while some MPs have also raised concerns.

Surprise visits will be used to check they are following the quarantine rules.
