Holiday destinations Leeds: all the green list places you can fly to from Leeds Bradford Airport from Monday
Travel restrictions are set to change on Monday as 47 countries and territories are removed from the red list.
Starting from 11 October, nearly 50 countries and territories previously on the red list will be removed and placed on the new 'go list'.
Earlier this month the amber list was scrapped in favour of just two lists, 'go' and 'no-go', to make it easier for people to travel between countries deemed safe.
As part of this month's change in restrictions, people who have had both jabs will also not need to take a test before leaving any of the 47 countries now on the green list.
On this change, a spokesperson for Leeds Bradford Airport said:
"Today’s announcement is another positive step for the travel industry and we’re delighted to announce that all flights at LBA will be on the UK’s Green List.
We want to assure passengers that travelling through LBA is a simple and easy process, especially given the revised status of many of our popular holiday destinations.
We can’t wait to welcome everybody back as Yorkshire’s airport.”
If on the red list travel restrictions will still apply as seen on the GOV.UK website.
Currently only British nationals or those with residence rights in the UK can return from a red list country, and upon doing so they must book a quarantine hotel package, including 2 COVID-19 tests, and complete a passenger locator form.
Here is the full list of destinations on the green list available to travel to from Leeds Bradford Airport from Monday.
