FCDO essential travel advice removed from 32 countries

One of the annoying things about travel in the UK is the fact that the FCDO advice based on Covid has often not aligned with the government’s traffic light system. Given that both are looking at the same data (I hope) you think they could have agreed on the criteria being used, rather than doing it in isolation. 

With the red list due to be decimated in the review this afternoon according to the papers, the FCDO has removed the advice against all but essential travel due to Covid from 30 countries. Most of these are not major tourist destinations but it’s a step in the right direction towards normality. Many insurance companies will not honour insurance to countries that have an FCDO warning against all but essential travel, so this is good news.

  1. This is Virgin Atlantics “old” lounge? Ohh how sad. I secretly hoped Virgin would keep it for when they move back to the airport. I guess they really have gone then!? That’s it.

    I love this airport, and although it seriously lacks services like arrivals lounges, it is a great airport and simple compared to Heathrow and all the busyness.
