There is new meaning for word "air bridge". Before coronavirus pandemic started, air bridge was the walkway that linked airport departure lounge to airplane's door. Now, it also means agreement that people can travel between two countries. Many people are also calling this "travel bubble". Australia and New Zealand have air bridge as both countries have successfully managed their responses to coronavirus. The United Kingdom has also signed air bridge agreements with several other countries. The agreements mean there are no quarantine requirements for those travelling between countries. Travellers currently need to quarantine for two weeks in UK.
Travellers arriving the UK must inform government of their contact details, travel details and address of where they will isolate for two weeks. Anyone who breaks 14-day quarantine period will get fine. However, the UK is trying to open up its economy and allow more people to enter country without the 14-day quarantine. It wants to allow visitors from France, Greece, Portugal and Spain to enter country. A British newspaper said these countries are "most advantageous" to UK economy. The newspaper reported that UK is also thinking about air bridges with Australia, Bermuda, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar and Montserrat.
