Ireland plans to join common EU system of COVID-19 travel restrictions - PM

Sun, 13th Sep 2020 12:16

DUBLIN, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Ireland plans to replace its
current system of travel quarantines with the European Union's
proposed coordinated system as soon as it is ready, Prime
Minister Micheal Martin told RTE television on Saturday.

The European Commission earlier this month proposed a common
traffic light system for EU member states to coordinate border
controls and remedy the current, confusing patchwork of
coronavirus restrictions on travellers across Europe.

Ryanair, Ireland's dominant airline, on Friday
called on Martin's government to commit to implementing the EU
plan.
