International Consolidated Airlines Group - Coronavirus: England scraps mandatory quarantine for travellers coming from low-risk countries

Westminster is to publish a list of countries exempted from the mandatory two-week quarantine rule.

Travellers coming from these areas, deemed low-risk, will not have to isolate for 14 days on their arrival.

The new measures are effective as of July 10 and will apply to people who have not transited through higher-risk countries in the previous 14 days.

All passengers will still be required to provide contact information on their arrival.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has also updated its global advisory against ‘all but essential’ international travel to exempt certain destinations that no longer pose an “unacceptably high risk” of COVID-19.

“The move should assist the battered tourism industry,” said David Madden, analyst at CMC Markets.

“It was reported yesterday that Westminster were talking about removing the quarantine rule, so there hasn’t been much of a reaction in airline stocks.”

British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LON:IAG) shed 2% to 227.2p, Ryanair Holdings plc (LON:RYA) dipped 1% to €10.84 and easyJet PLC (LON:EZJ) rose 2% to 696.4p.
