Coronavirus: the impact on the Travel and Tourism industry – BBC News


A passenger on an Aer Lingus flight from Belfast to Heathrow has shared photos showing most passengers sitting close together.

“There was no social distancing, there was no sanitiser,” according to Sean Mallon.

Aer Lingus has said it is reviewing procedures on its Belfast to London flights, following the claim it was not observing social distancing measures.

  3. My folks like 200 miles away .. normally I get home by train
    So that's an absolute no no now
    What's to say anything will change ?

  4. When this is over…. sure, I'm willing to book a vacation…. I'm willing to spend money on the traveling agencies and for the local businesses, but not just any amount they want me to!
    If the prices have increased too much after the coronacrisis is over, then I'd rather stay at home and save my money for something else..
    I understand that the prices will increase somewhat after this is over and 10% to 20% is what I'm willing to deal with but no higher…. otherwise they won't make any money out of me!

  5. The public are under the impression of a rabbit blinded by car headlights and living in delusion that all weill return to the 2019 gravy train. The industry was asked to agree a protocol in March for a future flying covenant..due to disagreement within the industry. All interested stakeholder groups failed to come up with any definited vision going forward. The passenger groups want certainty,timing,safety and leadership. None of these things have come to light reflecting passengers requirements. The industry is blamed for not stopping the 18 million passenger from landing in the UK without checks particularly from china and other infected parts of the world.

    The way forward for the industry is to increase cargo routes,fly to only a few nominated hubs in europe and UK where the virus levels are approved by those countries.
    Ask willie walsh why he has not got the freight contract to fly vaccines for the united nations UNICEF ?
    Why has he not sat down with heathrow to put in virus control measures for all passengers at Heathrow?

    These are the measures required by the health emergency to commence flying again to the UK.

    Foot and mouth mats at all airport facilities on both departures and arrivals.
    Tests for all pessenger within 72 hours of flying.
    Temperature check at airports and airlines before flying. This is done all over the world personally and IR cameras at airports.
    All passengers and services staff must wear protective gloves at all times, glassess, facecoverings and clean full protective clothing.
    Low density cabin and departure layouts, BA have business only aircraft available already.
    Each passenger must have a certificate of testing for any onward travel.
    New travel treatment clinics must be setup at hub airports with additional freestanding handwashing stations in concourses.
    All visitors to the UK must carry verifiable international health insurance ( From an international supplier) for the length of their stay in the UK covering virus treatment costs.
    Purchases of in flight food drinks must be booked and paid for before boarding.
    Sanitation and hand wipes must be given to each passenger before boarding, mobile phones,laptops and personal devices firmly stowed in the cargo hold. These are known to be major sources of virus transfer and cannot be used by passengers or airline staff.
    Deep cleaning of aircraft and new filters every flight which will reduce turnaround times,and push up ticket costs.
    Wheelchairs and other disabled equipment must be subject to cleaning before boarding.

    Clearly the challenge for Walsh is to make it work as all airlines will have the same rules. Airlines such as Ryan Air are already looking for ways to break these rules and should be subject to strick enforcement including impounding planes on departure, and removal of CAA certificates to fly under emergency legislation.

  6. I do not have any empathy for the shit airline , ripping off our money and treating us like no one. Horrible attitude at the airport and shit food

  7. Like other people in other business sectors, they might have to change career, like people may need to cut down on their holidays. Perhaps an opportunity to change the type of holiday making, a more sustainable type to maintain a habitable world for generations to follow? Flying all together is a joke under the circumstances. Everyone with brains should know, that the air in aircrafts gets recycled, alongside germs, unless they continuously fumigate the cabin, so everyone gets sick of chemical poisoning…And why is this passenger complaining? Did he expect to get a row in front and back and seats next to him to be clear, for the same price? Why did he fly? So narrow minded. Everyone has to be on lock down, just key workers going to work close to home, so should he!

  8. Airlines can afford to give passengers face masks if they don't want to limit seating capacity. This would help considerably.

  9. Imagine if they just legalized weed and made food / drinks with it, put them next to the alcohol aisle in shops. The funds produced from it would probably rival the travel industry

  10. Well, those Ryan air flights for €10.- return are a thing of the past, probably a good thing for the environment , but bad for tourism. Which ever way you look at it, someone wins or loses.

  11. These companies are part of the reason we are in this mess. They have carried on ferrying people in and out of the country, with no checks, minimal precautions. They deserve to go bust.

  12. Our tourism down cause by this corona virus.. Bohol, Philippines one of the famous great tourist distanation down..let us keep safe and battle this pandamic virus to go back in normal… 🙏🙏🙏🙏Let us pray.

  13. Can they not just test people before they board? Dont know how viable that is or how long it tastes to show the results. But if you can test like a breathalyser etc to show signs of the virus

  14. My heart bleeds for the airlines.
    The virus has come from the airlines into each country.
    If they would have shut down flights earlier they would have made this virus easier to contain.

  15. The "Novel Coronavirus" Infecting the World is a MILITARY BIO-WEAPON BIO-WEAPON PROOF

    Make no mistake: this disease is, in fact, a MILITARY biological weapon.   The disease sequence from the original Bat coronavirus was uploaded to the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the US National Library of Medicine, in the year 2018 by China's Institute of Military Medicine, Nanjing Command.

    Developed by China's Army The "novel Coronavirus" outbreak affecting China and many other countries right now, has been determined to be a military BIO-WEAPON, which was being worked on at the Wuhan Virology Laboratory by China's People's Liberation Army, Nanjiang Command.  Somehow, it got out.  The world is now facing a massive wipe-out of humanity as a result.

    The proof that this virus is a genetically-modified Bat-SARS-Like Virus, manipulated by the Chinese Army, appears below.  The evidence is irrefutable.

    Two separate components of genetic sequencing from HIV-1,  the virus which causes AIDS, were added to Bat-SARS-Like coronavirus in the laboratory, thereby allowing it to infect human lungs via the ACES2 receptors in our lungs, and to disrupt the human body ability to fight it off, by reducing human leukocytes

    That Bat-SARS-Like coronavirus was issued Reference ID: AVP 70833.1 by the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the U.S. Library of Medicine.

    The present outbreak of "novel Coronavirus" was uploaded to that same National Center for Biotechnology Information in January of this year by the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center and was issued 

    Using the test facilities known as BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) from the U.S. National Library of Medicine researchers have determined that the "virus envelope" of those two separate diseases, are 100% identical!  Within the first month of this outbreak in China, the government there effectively QUARANTINED more than fifty-six MILLION people (56,000,000) in nineteen (19) major cities, even though China reported publicly that only a few hundred were infected and only about 25 had died by that time.

    This plandemic has been planned since the Bilderberg conference in
    Watford in 2013. The pandemic bonds were issued by the banks 18 months
    ago and would pay back to investors if there was no pandemic before
    2020. (see zerohedge) The Event 201 conference (see youtube) was held in
    New York last October and involved Bill Gates foundation, the Bill
    Gates funded WHO, the World Economic Forum (the banks), John Hopkins
    University, the US CDC and the Chinese government CDC.

  16. The big businesses, bank's and politicians will be ok as always .it will be the ordinary working people who will be made even poorer after all this craziness ends .

  17. Lot of people are against Richard Branson. Keep in mind he is one of the best things UK has. We have very few British bands now and he is pushing the British image all over the world.
