Brittany Ferries wants vaccination-led approach to travel corridor policy

While certain groups in the UK are opposing vaccination passports because they would be discriminatory, an emerging opposing line has been that this is precisely the point.

Brittany Ferries said that reciprocal travel corridors, based on a combination of high vaccination rates and low infections, would offer a clear pathway towards a morale-boosting holiday, supporting the wellbeing of the nation. These measures could be supported by testing, and (potentially) vaccine passports.

Brittany Ferries has said that now was the time for a re-think on travel corridors, with a “vaccination-led” approach to the reinstatement of travel corridors between nations.

Brittany Ferries noted that vaccination rates were rising significantly in France and Spain, the two countries that the shipping and holiday operator serves with ferries from the English south coast.

Brittany Ferries  acknowledged that the Covid crisis was “fluid”, and that protecting the health and wellbeing of the nation was key, with circumstances subject to change.

The company said that vaccine roll-out should be an opportunity to present hope and optimism for a brighter summer.
