Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Saudi Gazette report

LONDON — The Civil Aviation Authority in the United Kingdom has issued 630 fines since Feb. 11 to airlines carrying passengers without the right documents.

Carriers face fines of £2,000 (SR10,430/$2,780) for each passenger they carry to England who does not have a valid proof of a recent negative coronavirus test or a completed Passenger Locator Form, the UK’s Department for Transport said in a press statement.

Passengers can be fined £500 if they do not have the documents, according to the statement.

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, according to the statement.

The Department for Transport said in the statement that these measures form part of the UK’s tough border measures to protect the UK as the vaccine rollout continues to make progress with more than 42 million vaccinations delivered so far.

It added that Border Force is “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”.
