Scotland confirms travel corridors, excluding Spain

There are significant levels of consumer concern about the Covid-19 infection risks of flying, research suggests. 

A survey for the International Air Transport Association (Iata) in major airline markets, including the UK, Germany, France and the US, found three out of five respondents had avoided air travel and one-third would avoid flying in future to avoid catching the virus.

All respondents had travelled by plane in the past 12 months.

Some 65 per cent of consumers were concerned about “sitting next to someone who might be infected”,  two in five were concerned about “using toilets”, with 37 per cent fearful of “breathing the air on the plane”.

Passengers’ major concerns at airports were “being in a crowded bus/train to the aircraft”, “queuing at check-in/security/border control or boarding” and “using airport toilets”. 

The survey of 4,700 consumers in 11 countries was carried out in June.
