Heathrow to open new terminal for red list arrivals after images of packed halls

Heathrow to open new terminal for red list arrivals after images of packed halls
The airport has decided to separate red list arrivals in order to avoid the spread of Covid variants in queues. Now travellers arriving from green or amber destinations won’t have to queue with people coming from high risk countries.
This past week, and since the international travel was lifted on May 17, there was a lot of criticism of the airports.

Images of packed halls and passengers coming from different destinations queueing together were shared on social media.

People were concerned that mixing passengers could increase Covid variants transmission.

Despite the new traffic light system, travellers coming from low risk countries arriving into UK airports found themselves queueing with arrivals from high risk countries.

From June 1, Heathrow is launching a new terminal to avoid the spread of Covid variants.

Britain’s biggest airport is actually reopening its Terminal 3, which has been closed for the past year.

Now, those travelling from red list countries will then transit through the new terminal.

They will then go to a hotel where they will quarantine for 10 days.

DON’T MISS

Heathrow decided to do this as the volume of passengers is expected to increase in the next weeks.

The airport said that opening a dedicated terminal for red list arrivals is “logistically very challenging.”

Heathrow said in a statement: “Our hope is that it will enable Border Force to carry out its duties more efficiently as passenger volumes increase in line with the green list.

“Red list routes will likely be a feature of UK travel for the foreseeable future as countries vaccinate their populations at different rates.

“We’re adapting Heathrow to this longer-term reality by initially opening a dedicated arrivals facility in Terminal 3 from June 1st for red list passengers arriving on direct flights.”

The airport explained: “Opening this facility will be logistically very challenging, but our hope is that it will enable Border Force to carry out its duties more efficiently as passenger volumes increase in line with the green list.”

They also announced that the new arrangement is likely to be in place for some time.

However, Heathrow said that the arrival terminal for those landing from the red list countries will eventually be moved to Terminal 4.

Under the current traffic light system, only UK citizens are allowed to return from red list countries.

Holidays are permitted in green list countries without quarantine required upon return.

The Government advised not to travel to amber destinations for leisure, although airports have seen thousands flying to those countries for holiday this past week.

When coming back from an amber country, a 10 day quarantine is required.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said: “We’ve been clear people shouldn’t be travelling to amber list for the purpose of holidays.

“Our advice hasn’t changed.

“We will keep the green list under review… and will add countries where possible.”

The next traffic light system review will be on June 5, when countries like Spain, Greece or Italy are expected to be added to the green list.

‘Woke’ brigade slams Saudi Arabia’s ‘abysmal’ human rights record as images of awe-inspiring Jeddah Formula 1 circuit are revealed

‘Woke’ brigade slams Saudi Arabia’s ‘abysmal’ human rights record as images of awe-inspiring Jeddah Formula 1 circuit are revealed

Formula One has showcased images from the newly-built Jeddah street circuit which will host the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix – but human rights campaigners have slammed the decision to hold the race in the region.

Last November, it was revealed that Saudi Arabia would pay £50 million per annum as part of a 10-year deal to host F1 races in a move that was immediately met with opposition from campaign group Amnesty International, who called on some of the sport’s biggest stars, including reigning champion Lewis Hamilton, to speak out against perceived human rights breaches. 

The debate has once again roared into the media after countless fans hit out at the partnership between Formula One and Saudi Arabia.

Their ire centered on the newly-revealed images and videos of the speedy new circuit on which drivers are expected to have an average speed of more than 155 miles-per-hour.

The circuit, which features an incredible 27 high-speed corners on each 3.8 mile lap, is set to host the penultimate race of the 2021 campaign. 

Located around 10 miles outside of the city center in Corniche, the circuit has three DRS (drag reduction system) zones which will allow for more overtaking options in the ultra-fast race – all with the Red Sea as its backdrop.

The design brings out the best of a modern street circuit but also has fast-paced, free-flowing areas that will create fast speeds and overtaking opportunities,” said Formula One managing director Ross Brawn. 

The setting is incredible, on the Red Sea, and we can’t wait to see the cars on the track in December.”

Not everyone shares Brawn’s enthusiasm.

There are more rights on that track than women have in that country,” one F1 fan chimed in online. 

Another wrote that “you can almost taste the oppression” from the clip, while a critic questioned why Formula One is “running in countries where slavery is still practised and women are second-class citizens.”

Saudi Arabia has been a frequent target for detractor over what they describe as “sports-washing” – the use of sports as a means to rehabilitate the reputation of a country engaged in human rights abuses.

The country hosted the December 2019 world heavyweight title boxing rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz, and is thought to be a potential candidate for the mooted unification fight between Joshua and Tyson Fury.

It has also hosted sporting events such as the Spanish Super Cup Final, the Saudi International European Tour golf event and the WWE’s ‘Crown Jewel’ pay-per-view event, among many others.

Amnesty International were among those to furiously hit out at the decision to allow Saudi Arabia to host a Grand Prix, calling the country’s human rights record “abysmal“.

A Saudi Grand Prix in 2021 is just part of extensive ongoing efforts by the Saudi authorities to sports-wash their abysmal human rights record,” Felix Jakens, Amnesty International UK’s head of campaigns, said last year.

With critics of the government either jailed, exiled or hounded into silence, the Saudi authorities have pursued a twin-track approach of crushing human rights while throwing large amounts of money at glittering sporting events.

It isn’t just motor racing – it’s golf, boxing, tennis, horse racing and, of course, the attempt to buy Newcastle United Football Club.”
