All passengers returning on repatriation flights should follow the UK's latest public health advice, as laid out by the Prime Minister last month. We will not be flying back people who are symptomatic or have COVID-19. All British nationals returning to the UK must comply with current social distancing rules, and self-isolate should they develop symptoms.
