Spain expects a quick decision to be made about the travel corridor to be built between Britain and Spain to facilitate mass tourism. The corridor is expected to prevent tourists from being held in quarantine.
According to a source, the two countries are in between talks of implementing an “air bridge.”
Spain released on Tuesday that it is considering implementing quarantine measures on tourists to the country after Britain did the same.Also Read-Prime Minister Ardern orders military to control New Zealand’s border
Spain receives about 80 million tourists every year of which Britons account for greater than one fifth. “Spain is willing to be open to the United Kingdom, we are in talks with them about their quarantine. We are in a position to open (our borders to UK tourists) without a quarantine,” the statement said.
Portugal, Greece, and France are all candidates for the travel corridor
Britain and Spain are both easing restrictions after being hit fiercely by the pandemic. Britain has more than 42,000 virus-related deaths, and Spain has more than 28,000.
According to reports by the Daily Telegraph, Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson said an announcement would be made on June 29th stating that agreements are reached for an “air corridor” with countries that have low levels of coronavirus deaths.
The “air corridor” is being aimed at countries such as Portugal, Greece, and France. The corridor would allow tourists to travel beginning July 4th without the hassle of quarantine upon arrival.
