UK travel rules October 2021

With the latest travel announcement from the UK government, it’s starting to get slightly easier to travel abroad with a new and updated system for international travel.

A private jet charter flight will also make your travel a lot easier too. It is considered a very safe travel option, as you are in contact with far fewer people at the airport and during your flight.

Moreover, during the security checking and boarding, you limit your health risk to a minimum since you have access to the executive terminal. You also avoid long check in and security queues and crowded airports, therefore saving time. With all the these benefits, flying private makes more sense now more than ever.

LATEST 

Eight countries will move from the red list on 22 September and the rules for international travel to England will change on 4 October 2021.

  • new clearer travel system: red list and rest of world
  • simpler, cheaper rules for fully vaccinated travellers coming from non-red list countries – fully vaccinated passengers will be able to replace day 2 PCR tests with cheaper lateral flow tests – from the end of October – and no longer need to take pre-departure tests (PDTs)
  • 8 destinations removed from red list including Turkey and Pakistan
  • government recognises full vaccinations from a further 17 countries and territories including Japan and Singapore

private jet charter for half term & winter 2021

Falcona can organise your private jet charter flight to your favourite holiday destinations such as, Malaga, Mallorca, Faro and further afield such as Miami, Florida and Orlando.

We understand how important it is  for families travelling with children for holidays. When it comes to flying private, the key is in knowing which aircraft will best suit your travel needs so that the charter is appropriate and you have the experience you deserve.

You can choose your departure time and the airport where you want to land. You can get to the airport just 20 to 30 minutes before departure and take off when you are ready. 

When you fly private remember you choose the people you travel with.

Increase your level of comfort and reduced stress whilst travelling to your favourite destination. 

Tailored to you and your unique flying requirements, you are guaranteed charter availability across our professional fleet of charter private aircraft. 

From the end of October, fully vaccinated people coming to England will no longer have to take a PCR test two days after arrival. Instead, they’ll be able to take a cheaper and simpler lateral flow test.

Passengers will be able to send a picture of their lateral flow test to verify the result. The Department for Transport has said NHS lateral flow devices cannot be used for travel.

Both pre-departure tests and on arrival tests must be bought from private providers.

It’s hoped this change will happen in time for people returning from school half-term breaks.
