According to the Financial Times, the new policy would allow fully vaccinated Brits to holiday in America within weeks.

This means a trip to Florida – popular with Brits due to both Disney World and Universal Orlando – or to New York could go ahead again this year.

There has been speculation about a lifting of the US ban for several months now, with the Prime Minister reportedly pushing for a travel corridor between the two countries back in June, at the G7 summit.

The UK has been on the US travel ban list since March 2020, with exemptions solely for US citizens and permanent residents, certain close family members and other limited categories of visa holders like diplomats and UN staff.

Before the outbreak of coronavirus, the UK-US air corridor was one of the busiest in the world.

More than five million people from the UK visited the US every year, with 4.5 million trips made in the reverse direction.

Airlines including Virgin Atlantic and British Airways have been pushing for a travel corridor between the UK and the US, citing the strong vaccine rollout in both countries.

British Airways has already been increasing their flight schedule between the US and the UK, with New York to London flights up from 17 per week to 21 per week.
