Heathrow to introduce fast-lane for vaccinated travelers

British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Heathrow have joined forces to assess if it can be quick and easy to verify those arriving into the UK who are fully vaccinated.

The trio argue a similar identification process is already in place for outbound travel to several countries and should be rolled out further.

Earlier this week, Germany became the latest country to confirm it would accept fully vaccinated UK travelers without the need to quarantine.

The new UK proving trial, enabling inbound travelers to present their fully vaccinated status, will support the government to move forward with its plans to remove quarantine for double jabbed passengers entering the UK from amber list countries.

The initiative will see fully vaccinated volunteers travelling on selected flights from Athens, Los Angeles, Montego Bay and New York to London Heathrow showing proof of their vaccine status.
