Scotland travel rules explained – Traffic light system scrapped but testing remains


Yet, the move has not been well received from those in the travel industry in Scotland.

A spokesman from Edinburgh Airport accused the Scottish control of deciding to “diverge yet again and further curtail Scotland’s aviation and travel industries in their recovery”.

He said: “We are now the most restrictive country in Europe yet there is no justification or trim benefit to retaining testing measures, something clinical professionals and experts have themselves said.

“This is great news for airports in Manchester and Newcastle – travellers will now travel there to avoid expensive tests and save around £100 per person, taking money out of Scotland’s economy and threatening our airline intellect.”
