Poll: How Effective Will Europe’s New Color-Coded COVID-19 Risk Map Be For Air Travel?

In September, the European Commission (EC) set out a proposal for a color-coded map to replace the current patchwork of COVID-19-related travel restrictions that airlines and airports say are putting off travelers through a lack of clarity.

The air transport industry has been lobbying for greater coordination of measures aimed at limiting the spread of the coronavirus, arguing that the inconsistent measures—such as quarantines and testing requirements—that individual countries have put in place are stopping would-be passengers from booking and harming airlines’ recovery plans.

Under the EC’s proposal, EU member states will supply their weekly COVID-19 infection data by region to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) for analysis and sorting by set criteria into different risk levels, with the information presented in a traffic-light color-coded map.
