Tourism Ireland and the Irish government and Northern Ireland executive are set on re-opening of travel to the island of Ireland. Ireland has adopted the European Union Covid-19 digital certificate, which will enable more seamless travel among member states.
Niall Gibbons, chief executive of Tourism Ireland, revealed in a statement that: “This announcement is an extremely welcome and important step on the road to recovery for our industry.
“This will help protect thousands of jobs and livelihoods across the tourism industry.
“For the first time in many months, we can look to the future with optimism.”
He added: “We know from our research that there is significant pent-up demand among travellers in Great Britain to return to the island of Ireland as soon as possible.
“However, we also know that there will be significant competition in the marketplace; every destination across the globe has experienced the impact of Covid-19 and will be seeking their share of the recovery.
“Our kick-start campaign will therefore need to punch through the noise and create an immediate desire to visit.”
