With the announcement of the “Test to Release” initiative, whereby as of 15 December passengers who arrive in England from non-travel corridor countries can choose to have their quarantine period slashed from 14 days to five days by taking a COVID-19 test, we were eager to learn more from the Department for Transport.

I had the opportunity to interview the aviation minister, Robert Courts. I was keen to get to know more about him as well as ask those all-important questions like what his favourite aircraft is — but also of course to learn more about how Test to Release will work.
