US to Lift Passenger Ban on EU and UK travellers

With the recent news of the USA lifting their ban on travellers from the EU and the UK it is expected that airline operators will begin to increase capacity on the Trans-Atlantic routes in line with demand. The move will mark the end of an 18-month travel ban which has been in force since the 17th March 2020. News of the ban easing has been received with delight by the airline industry and has immediately seen airline shares jump.

“This is great news for passengers and for air cargo” said Andy Nicholls (VP Trans-Atlantic Product). “With increased capacity coming back into the market, services that have been suspended for 18 months will slowly return.”

Horizon International applauds this decision by the US administration and will continue to negotiate with our airline partners so to ensure the best possible Trans-Atlantic air freight services are available to our customers.
