Whether they offer food and drink or a two-week break, many in the hospitality industry are hoping for positive news from the Prime Minister

Few industries have suffered as badly during the pandemic as vacation and hospitality, which have missed countless billions in lost revenue since restrictions were put in place last year

But what are your chances of when you will get what you want – and what is more important?

Follow the live coverage on Sky News as the Prime Minister is expected to address the House of Commons at 3:30 p.m. and host a press conference on Downing Street at 7:00 p.m.

Kate Nicholls, UK Hospitality General Manager, said “we are all waiting with bated breath” to see the details of Boris Johnson’s roadmap that is no longer banned in England

“It’s a very long roadmap, double the amount of time we spent in this third lockdown with no revenue,” she told Sky News

The aviation sector has been one of the hardest hit by the crisis as airports were deserted and thousands of jobs were cut due to travel restrictions designed to curb the spread of the virus

And many in the sector have criticized the government for the lack of financial aid and the sometimes arbitrary way it has put things like quarantine, testing, and other measures in place

One of the most outspoken was Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary, who criticized the government for its “mismanagement of COVID”

Mr O’Leary would like more support for the sector and a suspension of passenger service on flights

Heathrow CEO John Holland Kaye in December called for a “roadmap for UK vaccine rollout in 2021 so all businesses – including aviation – can plan accordingly”

At the time, he warned that international travel had effectively stopped at the UK’s busiest airport and that around 60 countries had closed their borders to travel from the UK

Like others, the airport has seen a drop in passenger numbers this year to a level not seen in decades, with a full recovery not expected for several years

Ministers are undoubtedly aware of the plight and limited relief Ms. Nicholls described

From the 8th March, when the lockdown easing plan begins, two people can meet outside for coffee “to solve some problems related to loneliness and, of course, mental health,” said Vaccination Minister Nadhim Zahawi

From 29 March, when many schools break on Easter, the “Rule of Six” returns, along with new measures that allow two households of more than six people to meet outdoors – providing opportunities for food and drink sales offers

The situation is different in Wales, where self-contained holiday homes could reopen in time for Easter, said First Minister Mark Drakeford last week

“The best thing would be to reopen independent accommodations where there is no common facilities and no social mixing”

He said they could have a similar policy to last summer if a stand-alone vacation rental opened first

But he also made it clear that he did not expect hospitality to be part of this initial reopening of the economy

The Scottish government is expected to release a “revised strategic framework” on Tuesday However, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said travel restrictions are likely to remain in place and Scots have been warned of booking breaks within the country during the Easter break

It is “highly unlikely” that hotels and self-catering venues will be fully open to accommodate people by then, she added

Northern Ireland executive promises “small steps” to ease restrictions, but as of Aug. March, groups of 10 or more from up to two households can gather in parks or other public outdoor areas

According to the schedule of five weeks per stage, on 12 April the next step towards complete easing is expected

For the hotel industry, whose members hope to be included in this second phase in some way, the 5 April the time when they would get final confirmation

Various reports suggest that hospitality could return sometime between Easter weekend and May, with an initial focus on outdoor catering

The longer-term picture of the government’s plans is not yet clear, but The Telegraph reports that earliest pubs and restaurants are likely to be allowed to reopen in April, with service only allowed outdoors

Details of the proposals for the remaining phases are expected later Four five-week sections from the 8th However, March means that the plan will be canceled on Jan. July could end

As the parents know, this is just before the start of the school summer vacation and promises a traditional summer vacation time

And on paper, the rest of the world should salute the British, as 17 million adults have already received a first dose of vaccine, with the goal of getting all adults dosed at around the same time

Opting for a 12-week break between three rather than three bumps has allowed the UK to vaccinate more citizens faster than many other countries

However, some may not want to travel to a country where coverage is lower, which in turn could mean an even sunnier summer for the UK vacation industry
