Smart’s September Green List Update


31 August 2021: Following the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s update yesterday morning, fully vaccinated travellers can now freely travel to Denmark, Finland, the Azores archipelago and Switzerland without having to quarantine on arrival.

Negative PCR tests must be shown on arrival into these destinations and a test must be completed once back in the UK. Visitors arriving into the UK from these countries will not have to quarantine but must also show a negative test on arrival into the UK.

Canada has also been added to the government’s green list with borders set to reopen to international visitors from early September.

With most of these recently added destinations just a short flight from the UK, they are easily accessible for visitors who wish to travel on some of the most desired executive jets in the world.

Our successful private jet charter operation has been running for over 16-years and we will accommodate all the personal touches including winter sports equipment and baggage allowances, branded cabins, quality in-flight dining and luxury airport transfers.

Safety remains of upmost importance and visitors can reduce the Covid risk even further by travelling by private jet. All of the aircrafts are deep-cleaned, and touch points are reduced by travelling in a small group and through a private terminal.

Smart Aviation Managing Director Mark Hawkins said: “It is very welcome news that these countries have been added to the green list as it provides travellers with more (much needed) variety. Finland and Denmark are both spectacular winter destinations, with snow in abundance and festive seasons filled with entertainment. Autumn is one of the best times to hike in Switzerland’s mountains, just before the snow starts to fall. We are looking forward to taking our clients back to these destinations in style.”
