HELP US OPEN AIR BRIDGES BETWEEN THE UK AND AFRICA

#OpenAfricanTravel

SIGN PETITION

WHAT?

African countries have been opening their borders since the start of September. We are calling for your help to put pressure on Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office and Public Health England to apply the same foreign office travel metrics to African countries that are applied for the rest of the world.

This will lead to air bridges being created to countries that you can travel safely to in times of Covid.

Africa has some of the lowest Covid numbers in the world and yet the FCDO is advising against all travel to Africa.

WHY?

Humanitarian - The African continent relies heavily on international travel for £130bn income and 25m jobs. Each African travel job typically supports 8 - 10 dependents, helping to support up to 250m people

Wildlife - More eyes on the ground in Africa reduces poaching of rhino, elephant and pangolin and subsistence killing of animals for bush meat.

Jobs - Help protect UK and Africa jobs across tour operators, travel agents, tourist board, airlines, marketing & PR companies and related support industries
