Does anyone know how the isolation rules apply when booked on an onward flight? Some examples:
Fly to Heathrow and clear UK immigration, then a few hours later fly to the North of England – can the internal flight be taken without a PCR test result?
Fly to Heathrow and clear UK immigration, then a few hours later, fly to an EU country – can the EU flight be taken without a PCR test result?
For the EU flight question, I’m sure some will say to stay airside and avoid entering the UK. But that is only possible if your carrier will inline luggage between arrival and departure flights – otherwise, I think you need to clear immigration in order to reach the baggage carousel.
Check ‘exempt’ on the PLF, declare a less than 24 hour transit, provide proof of onward booking, and you can go landside and onwards without the test requirement.
At least you could – who knows what new rules are being cooked up.
Worked for me (fully vaccinated) to the EU (Finland) twice recently.
