Portugal talking to Britain to secure ‘air bridge’ for tourism

Portugal and Britain are in talks to try and secure an air corridor for tourists that would allow British visitors to avoid a COVID-19 quarantine upon returning home.

 

Portugal’s tourism-dependent economy has been hard hit by the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns at home and abroad, and authorities are trying to save at least part of the crucial summer season.

 

Britain, the main source of tourism for Portugal, will introduce quarantine for travellers arriving from abroad from June 8, including returning Britons, who will have to self-isolate for 14 days.
