ABTA responds to First Minister’s Statement

An ABTA spokesperson said:

“It is welcome that self-isolation restrictions will ease on 19 July for fully vaccinated individuals returning to Scotland from amber list countries, but the First Minister must urgently review the ongoing advice against ‘non-essential’ international travel. It sends mixed signals to people who need a much-deserved break or long to see their friends and family abroad. While this advice remains, confidence to travel from Scotland will remain low and further financial support must be given to travel agents and tour operators, who continue to face the toughest trading conditions of all sectors.”
