US and UK Air Travel Corridor

US and UK Air Travel Corridor

The United States and United Kingdom are in talks to open up travel between the two nations “as soon as possible” through a new Atlantic Charter that will be unveiled Thursday.

The agreement would open the U.S.-UK air travel corridor according to The Wall Street Journal. The leaders of the two countries are expected to launch a joint task force with the goal of reopening travel between the two nations.

Travel between the two countries has mostly been at a standstill for about 15 months. Most U.S. travelers can’t visit without quarantining for 10 days, and U.K. residents are not allowed to travel to the U.S. either. Restrictions have been in place since March of 2020.

Tourism between the two countries is a big business. Before the pandemic, more than 5 million Brits visited the U.S. every year. On the other hand, more than 4.5 million Americans visited the U.K., making them the number one tourists, according to the U.K. government.

“Opening a U.S.-U.K. travel corridor is a smart, science-based step to take for both countries’ economic recoveries, and now is the critical time to take it,” U.S. Travel Association CEO Roger Dow said in a statement following the news. “The U.S. and the U.K. both have among the world’s leading records on vaccinations and declining infections, the U.K. is our top overseas travel market, and the two governments enjoy a close relationship.”
