From 4am on the 11th February, all testing requirements will be removed for eligible fully vaccinated arrivals, with only a Passenger Locator Form now required. Arrivals who are not recognised as fully vaccinated will only need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before day 2 after they arrive in the UK.

The new data, released by LLA, has also revealed the top destinations and reasons for travel.

Geneva, a popular skiing destination, tops the list. It’s followed by Malaga, for those holidaying for winter sun, and Paris and Amsterdam for passengers looking for a short city break.

Other top destinations for the upcoming half term include Krakow and Belfast.

Alberto Martin, CEO at LLA, said: “These numbers are very encouraging, especially following such a prolonged and difficult period for the aviation industry at large.

“Whilst there is still a long way to go, the lifting of restrictions is a significant milestone.

“We look forward to seeing passengers return in their numbers once more, and hope this signals a promising moment for the industry’s long-term recovery.”
