BRITS itching to enjoy a well-deserved holiday could find out the available destinations by May.
Boris Johnson is said to be granting tourists the list of Covid-secure countries under a traffic light system.
EasyJet is readying its mothballed aircraft and boss Johan Lundgren believes France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Croatia, Cyprus and Turkey will make the “green light” list in the next few months.
He told The Sun: “Summer can really take off this year.
“I wouldn’t see a reason why you wouldn’t have the majority of the countries of Europe in there.
“It is important that the Government comes out with this list as soon as possible. This is the main question for most of our customers right now.”

Daily death figures by “date of death” reveal that Britain has had no more than 28 deaths a day since the beginning of April.
