Three of Europe’s biggest airlines began a legal challenge to the British government’s quarantine rules for travellers, saying they should be struck down as the rule was disproportionate and been introduced without consultation.

The legal action by British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair proceeded came despite the government saying the policy would be ended for English holidaymakers to countries such as France, Spain and Italy, but not the United States.

The government introduced a blanket rule that all travellers arriving from abroad must self-isolate for 14-days after on June 8, arguing it was a crucial step to avoid a second wave of COVID-19.
