ETF joins industry coalition in a call for travel restriction coordination

18 Sep 2020

A coalition of stakeholders from aviation, transport, and tourism industries addressed a letter to Ursula von der Leyen today, expressing support of the Commission’s proposed EU coordination framework for travel restrictions.

They highlighted those common criteria are critical for aligned risk assessment and mapping of EU/EEA countries and the UK and encouraged the President of the European Commission to address individual governments and ensure their support. A coordination framework is a stepping stone to a recovery of these sectors and with them, European economies.

In addition to common criteria, the industry representatives also called for the development of an EU Testing Protocol for travel that would encourage the reopening of borders and avoid, or at least significantly reduce quarantines.

The letter is available here.
