Noticed an odd thing on flightradar24. It shows several Jet2 flights today including 1 to Faro but Edinburgh Airport destination board shows none. I think Jet2 pulled their Scottish flights for July when Scot Gov announced it's quarantine rules.  Must be working from old lists.

Flight Radar sometimes does that I have noticed.

Good news that friends from Denmark are now able to come. Their government had previously banned all arrivals by air from Portugal, hence no flights.

So it's safe now for almost everyone to come here, except the British.

Wonderful.

There is also a flight from Oslo coming in this weekend and reports that Portugal is to be excluded from the Republic of Ireland air bridges

There was a plan some years ago to introduce Norwegian beaver into Scotland some years ago.  Imagine my disappointment when I learned they were semiaquatic rodents.

Don't think there is any hope of Portugal been included on Ireland's green list.

When I flew from Faro to UK early on the 7th:

- All the shops on the landside were closed, if I remember correctly the "coffee shop" was open
- Airside (after security), the only shops open were the duty free and two of the "coffee shops".... the other shops/food outlets were closed.

Normally at this time most would have already been open or show signs of preparing to open.
