Will a fortnight in quarantine help us get back in the air?

Right now, the cats rule the Earth. They literally can go outside whenever they want. I see several ‘on patrol’ around the car park by my flat. When I go out for my 20 minute exercise they all run up to me to check I’m legit. It’s real.

But now, they’ve gone a step further. Like dogs, we may all have to be in ‘quarantine’ if we choose to take a flight. At least two weeks. Hmmmmmmm good excuse for Meghan Markle to stay in Beverly Hills (bitch, bitch).

According to the BBC, 

Industry body Airlines UK said the policy needed “a credible exit plan” and it should be reviewed weekly.

That means that people arriving in the UK would have to self-isolate at a private residence.

Government and aviation sources told BBC News that the quarantine would mean people might be expected to provide an address when they arrive at the border. It is not clear how long the new travel restriction would be in place and whether non-UK residents would be allowed to stay in rented private accommodation.

“We need to see the details of what they are proposing”, said Airlines UK, which represents British Airways, EasyJet and other UK-based airlines.

Now we all want to get back to work and that for many means travel. I have no problem providing my ID and an address. But with passport control, security and so on at airports already, how will this work practically? There is also evidence to suggest airfares will rise to allow for empty seats for social distancing.

With self employed types earning, well, pretty much zero right now, how is this possible?

Boris, over to you.
