England Bans Non-Essential Air Travel


As part of the new measures that will apply in England from 5 November, non-essential air travel will not be allowed.

Non-essential air travel is prohibited from November 5 to December 3, the provisional period of the lockdown. The measure only applies in England, not the rest of the United Kingdom.

People who have booked a holiday involving air travel may be able to get a refund from their tour operator or reschedule their holiday. In some cases, those who have booked a single flight can reschedule. If the booked flights are still being operated, the travellers do not have to be reimbursed.

Last week, London’s Heathrow Airport lost its position as the largest airport in Europe and was overtaken by Paris Charles de Gaulle, followed by Amsterdam Schiphol and Frankfurt.
