New Covid-19 restrictions leave UK travellers stranded in German airports

Passengers on several flights from the UK to Germany were left stranded in German airports on Sunday night due to measures over a new coronavirus strain in the UK.

A group of 63 passengers who flew from the UK to Hanover was not allowed to leave the airport immediately, having to pass a coronavirus test first.

Tests were carried out at the airport by medical personnel. The results of those tests will probably be known on Monday. In the meantime, cots were installed in the airport for passengers to spend the night.

A smaller group of passengers was stranded in Stuttgart airport. They were also tested and will be allowed to leave the airport if they test negative, but they will have to quarantine.
