Air Travel Bubble Agreement
“We are obviously very interested in making the travel bubble a success,” Lee Lik Hsin, executive vice president of Singapore Airlines` commercial company, said on Monday. “Of course, we have to take into account the different thinking that the government, the regulators will have on the approval of such a bubble, and if they are experimental, you can expect a certain degree of conservatism.”ii. Any Indian national or national of Nepal or Bhutan, destined for a single EU/Schengen, South American or African country and who has a valid visa from the country of destination. It would be good for the airlines concerned to ensure that there are no travel restrictions for Indian/Nepali/Bhutanese nationals to enter the destination country prior to the issuance of the boarding ticket(s) for the Indian/Nepali/Bhutanese passenger; and travel bubbles, also known as travel bridges or Corona corridors, eliminate this waiting time for a number of travelers from certain countries where the coronavirus has been contained. “In a `travel bubble`, a number of countries agree to open their borders to each other, while keeping borders closed with all other countries. So people can move freely inside the bubble, but can`t enter from the outside,” says Per Block, an Oxford University researcher on social mobility and methodology. “The idea is to give people extra freedom without causing further harm.” Travel bubbles are an extension of one of Block`s research priorities – social bubbles, where people expand their quarantine zones to involve more people they consider safe. Block is one of the authors of an Oxford study that suggests that social bubbles could be an effective strategy to mitigate coronavirus isolation, while the results have not yet been reviewed by experts. Travel bubbles, also known as travel corridors and Corona corridors, are essentially an exclusive partnership between neighboring or neighboring countries, which have seen considerable success in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic within their respective borders. These countries will then re-establish links between them by opening borders and allowing people to move freely within the zone without having to undergo quarantine on arrival.
The dissemination of this concept was encouraged by three Baltic States, namely Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, when they formed a trilateral partnership that allowed citizens of these countries to enter the territory of the Member States. This free passage would eventually be called a travel bubble. The safe bubble is not limited to tourism alone, it also allows the three Baltic countries to resurrect trade relations and revitalise other sectors. The likelihood that travellers will transmit the virus inside or become infected with the travel bladder is extremely unlikely due to the demonstrated success of the countries concerned in managing the outbreak. On the other hand, those who wish to enter the travel bubble from outside must submit to strict preventive measures, including a 14-day isolation, an official document that says they have not been infected with the coronavirus and have not been in contact with anyone who did. . . .
