UK travel restrictions are now in place for most countries, with the exceptions of the USA, Canada and Australia.

However a UK government spokesman said the government would “continue to work with our airlines to ease these restrictions”.
On Thursday, Ryanair, one of the UK’s biggest airlines, said it would be reopening the British Airways route from Manchester to London.
British Airways is a subsidiary of Air France, which operates most of the world’s biggest air routes.

“The reopening of flights in this area has been planned for some time, and is not expected to impact the current timetable of scheduled flights.”

The airline also said it is working with the government to re-open flights to Ireland.
British Airways said in its statement that it had also been advised by the Department for Transport that it could fly to Australia on Saturday, the day after the EU summit, but it has not been informed of any plans for that.
