Latest information on Jet2, TUI and easyJet travel as British Airways launches plan for vaccine passports


British Airways is set to launch an app-based vaccination passport to help customers travel abroad.

The airline plans to help travelers show they can travel safely once they’ve been trapped.

People who have had both jabs will be able to save their status on BA’s smartphone app as part of the plans.

Managing Director Sean Doyle said, “For us it’s pretty straightforward. I believe that people who have been vaccinated should be able to travel without restriction, and those who have not been vaccinated should be able to travel with a negative test result.

A scientist from a government advisory body added that summer vacation abroad is “extremely unlikely” this year due to the risk that travelers will bring variants of the coronavirus back to the UK.
