Airlines Suspend Flights Between Sweden And The U.K

All commercial flights between Sweden and the UK will be suspended from the afternoon of Thursday 9th April until further notice, according to The British Embassy in Sweden.
The Embassy has advised anyone living in the UK who wishes to return to Sweden, to arrange their journey now.

On their Twitter feed, the British Embassy suggested people should check their airline’s website for the latest schedule and information on flight availability.

As Denmark’s borders are closed until 13th April, this means there are no ways to travel between the UK and Sweden.

Sweden halted international travel into the country on March 19th, following an EU decision, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The entry ban is for 30 days and does not apply to EU or EEA citizens. Also exempt are people who can demonstrate an important reason to travel to Sweden, for example “diplomats, people in need of international protection and people who are to perform necessary functions in Sweden, such as healthcare staff and people transporting goods to Sweden”.

The travel ban could be extended but the Swedish government previously said in a statement that “it is an exceptional measure, which should not last longer than needed”.

The Local has asked the British Embassy for further comment around the recent flight suspension.
