British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce on June 29 that agreements have been reached for air bridges with a “small number” countries, including Portugal.

UK ministers said they want to set up air bridges to nations seen as “most advantageous” to the UK economy like Portugal, and also France, Spain and Greece.

The policy of air bridges is meant to enable people from other countries who have achieved lower levels of coronavirus infection to travel to Britain.


Slightly concerned that any travellers from abroad should be allowed to come here. Until the new cases have dropped below 500 and deaths dropped to below 100 on a daily basis it would be very dangerous for us as a nation. We need to be a little selfish and get this country back on track FIRST !!
