Brits will be able to travel to Magaluf and other popular European destinations from next week as the first “air bridges” are set to be announced by the government.
A series of holiday spots including Magaluf, Palmanova and Ibiza are expected to be declared safe for travellers.
A quarantine review is planned for June 29 and the Foreign Office will then change its travel advice from “against all but essential international travel” to allow travel to nations considered safe.
Yesterday, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the so-called air bridges will only be agreed with countries which have a low rate of coronavirus infections as well as a test and trace system similar to the UK one.
France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Greece, Belgium, Netherlands, Gibraltar, Bermuda and possibly Portugal will all be announced in the first batch of “safe nations”, The Sun reports.
This will mean Brits can fly to and from Majorca without the need for quarantining for 14 days.
