No transit via Dubai from India and no onward connections as with a few exceptions little inbound passenger traffic allowed at the moment.

You realise pretty much anyone flying in, even if not on the red list has to be tested before departure, then pay for two more tests while quarantining (£210) and if they did test to release would pay and be tested again. That’s 4 tests in a week. Yet I go to Tesco and half the store are face mask exempt, touching everything and having a chat.

We now have some of the toughest rules in place. As for your attempt to pin it on the “right wing” it’s anything but. Most of the right wingers are calling for things to be opened up.

It's no wonder that you have had so many cases. I can't remember when I last saw anyone in our supermarkets not wearing a mask, even quite young children.

In Oban.....Face masks are mandatory here in Tenerife when in supermarkets and are policed by security guards, so people do obey. Resulting in decreasing infection rates on the statistics. Now back to Manchester folks.....

What I mean is, is it possible for people to arrive in Doha, from a red list country and then travel on to UK? Not necessarily using air travel.

From todays Independent:

Manchester airport, currently the second-busiest in the UK after Heathrow, is excluded.

A spokesperson for Manchester said: “We continue to work closely with the government to understand how the managed quarantine policy might be implemented, and the process for handling ‘red list’ passengers while travelling through our airport.”

If you somehow are referring to a land bridge of sorts well that’s what the declaration is to cover I suppose even through Paris Brussels and across the Channel. Risk it and the penalty is rather heavy isn’t it ?

You are committing an offence with a maximum penalty of ten years irrespective of the routes via third or even fourth countries.

I assume they would have to be taken to the BHX hotel - as it is the nearest ?

In my local supermarket I rarely see anyone without a mask, and security are stopping people at the entrance who dont have masks to put them on.

Same here - I've seen one couple, and they stuck out like a sore thumb.

Navpi must be pleased with the recent increase in cargo flights from Manchester too

Ecstatic Mr K.

Manchester 48% down
Stansted 51% up

Interesting correlation there. Almost exact !
Coincidence?

Given naysayers here suggesting there is no money in freight STN must be absolutely seething that they having to deal with all that extra cargo that's not making them any money.

Without expressing an opinion either way on how MAG manage cargo, I think the maths assumes the same starting base which appears to be incorrect.
MAN is down 51.5% to 3879 suggesting a starting point around 7900 - a loss of c4000
STN is up 48.4% to 23173 suggesting a starting point 15600 - a gain of c7550
