LONDON: Britain’s travel industry called on the government for an airport testing regime and more tailored support as it published figures showing how the pandemic has sapped demand for the overseas trips that are its lifeblood.
ABTA, the UK industry body representing 4,300 travel brands, said that between February and July 2020, which included the country’s three-month lockdown period, only 15 percent of 2,000 Britons surveyed took a foreign holiday compared to 64 percent the previous year.
