Airline Alliances Call for Global Standards to Reopen Aviation

The three global airline alliances are calling on G7 governments to agree on a common set of travel and health standards to enable the safe reopening of borders. The three groups: Oneworld, SkyTeam and Star Alliance say this move is necessary to facilitate the safe restart of international travel. The chief executives of the three global alliances said: “International air travel and tourism are vital to the global economy. With considerable data now available to support government decisions in managing risks, decisive action from G7 members to open borders and support clear, consistent, and data-driven measures, would remove uncertainty, particularly around testing and quarantine.” The groups are requesting G7 governments implement the following changes: exemption from quarantine for vaccinated travellers, accessible, affordable, and consistent COVID-19 testing, and no additional testing or quarantine measures for connecting passengers at airports.
