US-UK joint taskforce to discuss transatlantic travel restart

A transatlantic air travel bubble between the US and UK has taken a small but positive step in the right direction.

PM Boris Johnson and US President Joe Biden will establish a taskforce.

It will 'look at how we can reopen transatlantic travel between the US and the UK,' said UK Trade Minister Greg Hands.

Hands said resuming US-UK travel should be resumed 'as a matter of priority' due to its importance to business as well as leisure travel.

The US remains on the UK 's amber list, meaning Britons have to self-isolate for 10 days on eturn to the UK.

"This is one of the agreements that Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President Joe Biden will be launching, we'll be looking at how we can reopen transatlantic travel," Hands said.

"Every day a million people in this country go to work for US companies. In the United States, more than a million people go to work for British companies. It is very important that we get that transatlantic relationship reset up in terms of travel between the two countries."
