MAG response to latest government travel restrictions

Charlie Cornish, MAG chief executive, said:

“We understand the need to respond quickly to the emergence of new variants where there is a substantial threat to public health.

“But, yet again, the Government has chosen not to share data and evidence to support its actions.

“Uncertainty, and a lack of transparency on decision-making, is destroying consumer confidence in travel and will hold back the recovery of one of the UK’s most important industries.

“There continues to be no recognition from the Government or the Opposition of the impact these restrictions will have on our sector, and the urgent need for support while we continue to be prevented from operating normally.”
