British Airways has found itself in a situation where it needs to send staff back to furlough, the government’s job protection scheme. The move comes following the UK Government’s decision to reduce its already limited list of green list destinations where travelers do not have to quarantine on returning to England.
Commenting, a British Airways spokesperson told Simple Flying,
“Like many companies we’re using the furlough scheme to protect jobs during this unprecedented crisis. However, it’s vital the Government follows its risk-based framework to re-open international travel as soon as possible, putting more low-risk countries, like the US, on its green list at the next available opportunity.”
