The first British airport returned in an influx of passengers. In July, the Heathrow “hub” in London saw more than 1.5 million passengers, the highest number recorded since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020. But airport leaders warn: it’s still down 80% from the east. Crisis level. They still call for the immediate lifting of the applicable travel restrictions.
This is an increase of 74% as compared to July 2020. It owes much to the lifting of travel restrictions as decided by the authorities. Passenger numbers from North America increased by 230% in July.
The New York-London route has resumed its flagship location. And this can only be reinforced with the reopening of borders to duly vaccinated travelers from the United States and some European countries in August. American company JetBlue should resume its flights between London and New York this week.

but for the leaders of Heathrow AirportThe British government would benefit from capitalizing on large-scale vaccination campaigns to seek reciprocity for British travelers in the United States.
Other constraints such as the high cost of testing still imposed on passengers disembarking in London and the quarantine still imposed on passengers arriving from France, an exception, should also be lifted accordingly. For now, traffic remains 80% below pre-crisis levels.
