Mike Tibbert, president of The Scottish Passenger Agents’ Association (SPAA), the professional body for travel agents and the travel sector in Scotland says,
“The announcement today of the removal of pre departure testing requirements and the change to lateral flow tests over PCRs on day two after arrival in Scotland for fully vaccinated adults and under 18s, is hugely welcomed by all of us in the Scottish travel sector.
“Hopefully we can start to see the restoration of confidence in international travel, which is such a valuable sector for the entire Scottish economy.
“We hope this is the start of positive messaging about travel and an end to mixed messaging, sudden U-turns and unexpected, lightning reversals of regulations.
“What we need now is a properly organised, structured, four nations road map to ensure a stable future for Scottish travellers and the recovery of the Scottish travel industry.”
