The head of Britain’s largest airport, Heathrow, said the new rules requiring people arriving in England to test negative for COVID-19 should only be temporary and the government should plan how to end it.

“It can only be a temporary measure,” Heathrow Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye told BBC Radio on Friday.

“We need to have a roadmap on how to get out of this because aviation is vital to us as a small island trading nation.”

He also said that vaccination programs in Britain and other countries gave him hope for a travel recovery later this year.

“We will see that the flights begin to return and the number of passengers increases during the summer and then in the fall,” he said.
