“A return to restriction-free travel is good news for passengers and should allow aviation to take significant steps towards recovery.
"People should feel encouraged to book their long-awaited holidays, trips to see relatives and friends abroad that they haven’t seen for a long time, and travel to rekindle business ties with other countries.
“Recovery is not a given, however, and with the rising cost of living, the rise in fuel prices, and the uncertainty following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there remain potentially significant headwinds for UK airports as they seek to attract travellers back.”
“It's been an incredible 50 years for the Civil Aviation Authority, and indeed for the whole aerospace industry.
"I'm proud that the organisation has been able to sustain its position at the forefront of aviation and aerospace regulation for this extraordinary half-century, promoting safety, enjoying the trust and confidence of those that we regulate, and ensuring that we deliver the best possible outcomes for consumers and the industry.
"Aerospace has always been at the leading edge of technology, and I know that it will continue to be throughout the next 50 years. As the UK’s aviation and space regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority is proud and excited to play its part in enabling and securing that future."
