MAJOR British airlines have launched a lawsuit against the UK government to end the two-week self-quarantine rule imposed on new arrivals to the UK, reports Bloomberg.

British Airways, Ryanair and Easyjet are trying to block the rules after criticism from the airline industry that the Covid-19 requirement will stop customers from booking summer vacations.



Whitehall's rule 'will have a devastating effect on British tourism and the wider economy and destroy thousands of jobs,' said the airlines, as they demanded a judicial review from the courts.



The government, which ordered many businesses to shut, is now taking measures to ease lockdown and encourage the economy to start again.



International Air Transport Association predicted carriers will lose a combined US$84 billion this year and almost $16 billion in 2021, its first estimate of the hit to earnings since the coronavirus crisis began. That compares with $31 billion during the 2008-2009 recession.
