The Prime Minister announced today that, as of Saturday, there will be a total interruption of flights between Portugal and the United Kingdom, with the exception of those that are of a humanitarian nature to repatriate Portuguese and British citizens.

António Costa announced this measure after having participated by videoconference in an informal summit of European Union leaders aimed at coordinating measures to combat covid-19 among the Member States.

According to the prime minister, during this informal meeting of leaders of the European Union, there was, globally, “a manifestation of great concern regarding the development of the pandemic, namely with regard to the growth driven by the new  variant discovered in the UK, especially in countries that have closer relations with the United Kingdom, as in Portugal “.

In terms of borders, António Costa considered that the “most important” decision taken at the informal summit was precisely related to the end of flights to the United Kingdom, or from the United Kingdom to Portugal.
