The word "air bridge" has a new meaning. An old meaning is the walkway that joins an airport to an airplane. Now, it also means a way for people to travel safely in the coronavirus pandemic. It is also called a "travel bubble". Countries that feel safe in the coronavirus are making air bridges. The U.K. will have air bridges with other countries. People travelling between these countries will not need to quarantine.

Travellers to the UK must give the government their contact and travel details and where they will quarantine. Anyone who breaks the 14-day quarantine will get a fine. The UK wants to open its economy to people from other countries. It wants to allow visitors from France, Greece, Portugal and Spain. A newspaper said these countries are "most advantageous" to the UK economy. The UK is also thinking about an air bridge with Australia.
