Might not be for much longer when flooded with Brits from highly infected areas!

There are four types of police in Tenerife and they are all more persuasive in making you adhere to the Covid advice than those in UK.
  • The President of Tenerife, Pedro MartŪn has said this afternoon… We have to be more forceful with sanctions because the future and the economy of Tenerife is at stake. To cope with the pandemic, we will strengthen ourselves with more military trackers and a greater police presence in hot spots.

So there is 32 inbound flight's today from UK Airport's to TFS. Not taking into account flights from mainland Spain etc where there has been a spike of the Covid.Therefore,are the locals more interested in the Euro or the Virus?

After Thursday flights from the UK will reduce to a trickle with UK lockdown banning holidays. From 14th November the Canaries will have their new measures in place (ie provide a negative Covid certificate to gain access to regulated accommodation). That should stop most 'Brits from highly infected arears' and other countries including regions of Spain from importing the virus.

I wish people would stop calling this a UK lockdown. It's extremely misleading.

Scotland and NI are not in Lockdown and Wales is coming out of its firebreak lockdown in a few days. This is an English lockdown, for England. In Edinburgh, while we have some restrictions, I am by no means in a lockdown and won't be when England goes into Thiers either. The situation may change, I hope not, but the fact remains there is no UK lockdown happening.

No different than the EU with 27 different countries and 27 different policies. Go to Spain and there are 17 autonomous regions with 17 different set of rules.

The worst thing the UK did was to devolve power.

Why? It lets England see how badly they are being governed.

Spare us your Pro-SNP rhetoric. Scotland has fared no better either politically or from a virus management perspective in this whole debacle.

I am not an SNP supporter. I suggest that you look at the data over recent weeks and explain why the Scots don't need to go for a complete lockdown.

I'm no snp supporter by any stretch but if id have to disagree fairly strongly with that statement. Even the Scottish tory leader has broken rank and said the FM has been a better leader. I can't stand ms Sturgeon but I'd have to agree with him.

Agreed, Iím far from an SNP supporter but I think itís clear that, at least in recent weeks/months, the situation has largely been handled better in Scotland than in many parts of England. Obviously Scotland has been under tougher restrictions for a few weeks longer than England but these are now easing in all areas and there wonít (yet) be a full national lockdown.

Most well run countries in the world ie Germany 16 Bunderslšnder, Switzerland 26 Cantons, Australia 6 States and 10 territories, Canada 10 provinces and 3 territories to name a few all have Federal systems, all the systems have more devolved powers to various component regions and arguably more successful as nations than the UK. So what the worst thing the UK has done is limit devolution and have all the power to muppets like BoJo, Gove and Dominic Cummings and we deserve the shit storm that is destroying aviation.

One of the main reasons sighted for Spain’s poor Covid response are the conflicts of opinions from each region which can set its own rules. Like the UK, people are restricted from travelling freely, which is what the EU nations did with each other in the Spring.

Changing the subject I was talking to a cousin in Federal Canada who had a Covid test 4 weeks ago and still hasn’t got his results back.

None of this plays well regarding air travel. 9 months on and very few countries have the virus under control and the ones that do have very strict controls on who is allowed into their countries so we wait for a vaccine that many have said they won’t have.

I've noticed, particularly in the last 6 weeks that throughout Europe, scheduled flights have been consistently closing doors maybe 15 mins before scheduled departure time, and taking off often a few minutes before scheduled departure time - with the result that on arrival passengers begin disembarking well before the scheduled arrival time

Can anyone point me to some weekly or daily rigorous punctuality stats so I can see if punctuality has indeed improved as much as I think ?

Are there any restrictions in place for air travel between England and Scotland? It seems that both countries will have different set of rules tomorrow, it all seems to be confusing.
