Walsh is furious about the measure, which has not been discussed with the aviation sector. “This torpedoes the possibility of flying again in July. It is irrational and disproportionate, “he said in an interview with Sky News. He is now examining the opportunities for legal action.
The International Airlines Group is the parent company of British Airways, which currently only operates a very limited number of flights. Walsh says that as much has flown in the past month as before in half a day. Due to the quarantine plan, the company can hardly restart.
Competitor Ryanair has already indicated that it will support a possible lawsuit.
