Over 600 UK Fines Issued To Airlines Carrying Passengers W/Incorrect Paperwork

Pax Required To Provide Proof Of A Negative COVID-19 Test

The UK's Civil Aviation Authority has issued 630 fines since February to airlines carrying passengers without the right documents.

The CAA notes that it currently remains a requirement for all passengers, no matter which country they have travelled from, to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 3 days before departure and to self-isolate on arrival. A passenger locator form (PLF) must also be completed and passengers arriving without a completed form and negative test also face a £500 fine.

Carriers are obliged to ensure passengers have these documents before they arrive in England and can face fines of £2,000 for each passenger they carry who does not have a valid Pre-Departure Test Certificate, and £2,000 for each passenger who does not have a completed PLF (including with the correct test booking reference number for managed quarantine or mandatory testing).

This is in addition to fines of £4,000 for failing to provide the correct information to passengers before departure and during the journey informing them of their requirements, and a £2,000 fine for conveying passengers who have been in a red list country in the previous 10 days to a non-designated port.

The Civil Aviation Authority has issued 630 fines since 11 February 2021 to airlines carrying passengers without the right documents. These measures form part of the UK’s aggressive border measures as the vaccine rollout continues to make progress with more than 42 million vaccinations delivered so far.

UK's Border Force states that they are currently checking every individual coming into the country, no matter where they have come from, and will continue to carry out thorough checks at the border to keep the public safe. While the stay in UK requirement is in place, entrants are only allowed to leave the UK from England if the have a 'reasonable' excuse.
