The findings show a desire by the majority for secure, regimented international travel, supported by the Coronavirus vaccine passport. They want to see the same rules applying across the board, from pilot to passenger, with 70% agreeing that crew must also provide proof of vaccination.
In addition to compulsory vaccination passport checks, 78% of survey respondents believe passengers must supply a recent, negative Covid test to travel. 57% of respondents said they had been vaccinated and had no plans to travel abroad this year.
“Whilst there are understandable concerns around the virus continuing to spread in some countries, Covid vaccines are rolling out at pace both here in the UK and across the globe. Add to this the introduction of the new governed traffic light system which is supporting the UK’s lifting of the Stay-at-Home restriction, it is inevitable we will see bookings for international travel increase,” comments Rachel Temperton, Head of Travel and Tourism at Allianz Assistance UK.
