International travel is now being allowed only to countries that have agreed to the traffic light system and show proof that they have had a Covid vaccination together with a secondary booster Jab. They will also have to agree to be further tested on arrival of the their destination. They will not be required to isolate in a hotel on their return. The first country to open their doors is Portugal followed by Gibraltar and possibly Spain who are still assessing the situation.

Aircraft here have been put on standby ready for the word GO! Understand US may also be resuming normal scheduled Atlantic flights once they get the go ahead. I just hope that this is the beginning of the end of Covid although “experts” are convinced it will be around for some years to come.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel, atlast.
