The Government is considering the concept of international travel corridors, including air bridges, and how they could be implemented in practice along with other measures. We want to open up as a country as soon as we responsibly and safely can, but we have to do it safely and responsibly. We are, of course, continuing to engage with all partners on all aspects of the global response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
