GBTA, the Global Business Travel Association, has released a statement reiterating the importance of cooperation between the E.U., Canada and the U.S. to restore safe travels and reboot the economy. GBTA is urging the European Commission, E.U. governments, Ottawa, and the White House to pursue talks to find a resolution for transatlantic travel, based on reciprocity, proportionality, and the latest scientific advice.
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) says it supports the European Commission’s efforts to coordinate Europe’s reopening and the guidelines it published late last week on how to safely resume travel to the Schengen Area. Despite the recommendation to gradually start reopening external borders as of July 1, the travel sector, according to GBTA, fears that European Union (EU) countries may continue to act unilaterally, leading to the patchwork of rules and confusion already being experienced this month.
