Britain will introduce a COVID-19 quarantine for travellers arriving from overseas from June 8, interior minister Priti Patel said on Friday, a measure that airlines have warned will devastate their industry.

Under the rules, announced by Home Secretary Priti Patel, all worldwide arrivals - including British citizens - will be required to self-isolate for 14 days and provide details of where they will be staying to the authorities.

Any passengers arriving in the UK by plane, ferry or train would be asked to provide an address to UK Border Force officials about they would self-isolate, and could be fined up to £1,000 if they're found to be breaking the quarantine, BBC say. There will reportedly be spot checks to ensure the isolation is adhered to, and £1,000 fines for anyone who breaches the quarantine period.

If this does not meet the necessary requirements - such as hotels, or with friends or family - they will be required to self-isolate in facilities arranged by the government.

Those exempt from the 14-day self-isolation include road haulage and freight workers, medical workers and foreign officials, said Lincoln.

"I would urge the government to get on with it and give us the details about how it " s going to work in practice", he said. "Therefore, we are calling for a multi-layered approach of carefully targeted public health and screening measures, which will allow for a successful and safe restart of worldwide air travel for passengers and businesses".

"This approach will damage global business and investor confidence at a time when it is vital to demonstrate that the United Kingdom can open for business safely", BCC Director General Adam Marshall said.

He didn't say if individual countries will be able to apply for exemptions.

Virgin Atlantic said quarantine would prevent services from resuming and claimed there "simply won't be sufficient demand to resume passenger services before August at the earliest".

Labour's shadow home secretary Nick Thomas-Symonds said the party supported the new measures "but is clear they are no substitute for a long-term, well thought through approach".

A full exemption list will be available soon, according to Ms Patel.

That is bad news for those hoping for a foreign summer holiday.
