“There can be no economic recovery without aviation and we feel confident that we have the tools to enable a safe start and reliable to begin air travel in May, “wrote the representatives of those airlines.
“We believe that vaccinated passengers should not be subject to travel restrictions and that (covid-19) testing can also reduce barriers to travel, “they added.
