LCCI respond to travel hotel quarantine announcement

Wednesday 27 January 2020

Responding to the Prime Minister's confirmation in the Commons that arrivals from some nations will have to undergo hotel quarantine in the UK, Richard Burge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said:

“If scientific experts have judged that enforced hotel quarantine is the best way to protect the vaccination roll-out from new variants, then economically it will make sense in the long-run. But for now it is, of course, economically damaging to our aviation and travel sectors, to London’s world city status, and all the onward benefit that brings to businesses and areas around the UK.

“Our aviation and travel sectors will be key, when the time is right, to the economic recovery of London and UK regions. Government must provide sufficient support until then, as failure to do so will lead to recovery becoming a delayed arrival.”
