Amid ‘nightmare’ rush to get home before quarantine cut off
Huge crowds of Brits are squeezing into a Portuguese airport as the race to get home before Tuesday continues.
Faro Airport has turned into a mini-slice of British society over the past three days, following a UK government announcement that Portugal would soon be reclassified as amber.
The move means returning travellers will have to pay for expensive tests and quarantine for 10 days, if they get home after 4am on Tuesday.
The rush to get onto a plane before then has seen prices for flights rocket.
There are an estimated 112,000 Britons currently in Portugal and airlines have been laying on extra flights or larger aircraft to get people home.
