In the wake of the Corona epidemic, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday announced a ban on non-essential international travel until around 17 May. The epidemic has had the greatest impact on the travel and aviation sector, but the restrictions have been imposed due to Corona's new strain.

In the wake of the Corona epidemic, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a ban on non-essential international travel on Monday. He said it would not be allowed before May 17. The epidemic has had the greatest impact on the travel and aviation sector, but the restrictions have been imposed due to Corona's new strain. On the roadmap of the lockdown, he said that it is part of the second phase of the roadmap and it will come into force at least five weeks after the first phase of the roadmap, which comes into effect on March 8.

However, the Prime Minister and his advisors will take a final decision on this. They can also postpone it if they feel necessary. He said that international holidays would not be allowed before May 17. Johnson said the government's Global Travel Taskforce would recommend issuing a report by April 12 to resume international travel safely. This will give people time to make their plans for the summer.

People associated with aviation have reacted to this. According to Sky News, Airport Operators Association chief executive Karen Day said that after being the most affected economic zone in 2020, this decision ensured that the situation would not improve in 2021 as well. British Airways CEO Sean Doyle said that it is important that we see a way to resume the journey. We support a data-driven approach to the protection of public health. We now want to work with the government's task force on a road map to ensure that the aviation sector is in a strong position to support Britain in recovering from the epidemic.
