Airlines Call For COVID-19 Testing To Restore Transatlantic Travel

Major airlines are urging the United States and the European Union to quickly restore transatlantic travel by deploying the joint COVID-19 testing program.

The concerns about the transatlantic air travel

In a letter, the respective CEOs of major airlines such as United Airlines, American Airlines, International Airlines Group (IAG) and Lufthansa Group stated: “Given the unquestioned importance of transatlantic air travel to the global economy, as well as to the economic recovery of our businesses, we believe it is critical to find a way to reopen air services between the U.S. and Europe.” 

The letter also said that a collaborative Covid-19 testing program could be an excellent opportunity for both government and industry work and could also serve viable means to safely restore passenger flights between the U.S and Europe. This letter which was marked as “with urgency”, was addressed to the United States’ Vice President, Mike Pence, and also to European Home Affairs Commissioner, Ylva Johansson. And soon after, it was signed by United’s Scott Kirby, Lufthansa’s Carsten Spohr and  American Airlines’ Doug Parker and Willie at IAG, which is the parent company of British Airways and Iberia.
