UK Travel firms calls for government help

The UK’s travel industry has reached to a “critical point” and is asking for further support to stem job losses.

Measures to curb the pandemic have already led to the loss of around 39,000 jobs, said travel industry trade body Abta. About 65% of travel firms have had to make redundancies or start a consultation process.

The Association of British Travel Agents (Abta) warned that more job losses were set to come as the government’s furlough scheme is phased out, unless new support measures are introduced.
