Free Money to Travel? And Other News (#57)

In this Weekly Roundup of travel news, #nerdbirds Jeremy & Kai talk about towns in the US that are offering free money to entice travellers to visit, Japan’s new low-cost carrier that is taking unbundling of business class to a whole new level, and talks are underway in an attempt to open up an air bridge between New York City & London by the holiday season, aiming to reduce quarantine requirements on what was one of the busiest international sectors in the world pre-pandemic.

In the second part of the episode, we go into an in-depth discussion surrounding the development of health passports as a way of opening up travel around the world in the pandemic era, what products are out there so far and tests being done to enter large venues as a corollary for the application to the greater travel infrastructure.
