Holiday firms launch legal action over travel lists

A group of leading travel businesses including Ryanair, BA, travel business Tui and Manchester Airports Group have launched legal action against the government over its travel curbs. The action is going ahead despite an easing of travel rules on Friday. The chief executives of the groups involved said in a statement: "British consumers need to understand how decisions are made so they can confidently plan their travel, which is why we are asking the government to provide the data and advice that is underpinning its decision making." The rules on travel now mean that, starting from 19 July, fully-vaccinated British residents returning from so-called amber list countries, which are deemed a medium-risk, will no longer have to quarantine on arrival back in the UK.The traffic light system rates countries green, amber or red based on their Covid risk. Travel companies have long complained they have little idea how the government makes decisions on travel rules.
