Flying in from a country that’s on the UK government’s ‘Red List’? Well, a, you’re lucky to be able to fly anywhere outside the UK, and b) you’ll have to quarantine for ten days.
That’s been made a little easier for General Aviation at London Biggin Hill Airport which is now accepting international flights from red-listed countries after receiving UK Government approval as a national entry-point for England.
Clearly this is aimed at business aviation travellers but also applies to anyone flying on smaller aircraft.
Passengers onboard arriving services from red-listed countries must be British and Irish nationals or hold residence rights within the UK.
On arrival at London Biggin Hill, passengers must quarantine at Government-designated managed hotels for ten days in accordance with current Covid-19 restrictions.
Andy Patsalides, head of marketing, London Biggin Hill Airport, explained, “Initiatives introduced at the airport in response to the Covid-19 pandemic include our ‘Contactless Travel’ initiative, allowing passengers to board and alight aircraft with very limited touchpoints throughout their journey, and our dedicated on-site Covid-19 testing centre. Both have supported our local community and international passengers and crew travelling to and through the airport.”
