An insider view of restricted business travel

Zaina Gohou, fashion and technology entrepreneur, documents her insights into the difficulties of being a business traveller during COVID crisis. Gohou feared that her career would be on the line; she remarked that her workload became more demanding as more countries lifted travel bans and were quarantined between every job. Travelling through Corsica, Madrid, and Croatia, her careful attention to detail and preparation helped ease her concerns. Gohou, who consistently tested negative, conquered the art of travel safety. Her preparation routine includes stocking up sanitation supplies and keeping up-to-date with news and regulations. Bringing the exemplary slogan of making the most out of every situation, Gohou believed the quarantine was a blessing in disguise. It slowed life down and allowed more room for reflection and healthy lifestyle changes. 

The European Commission’s plan for co-ordinated travel measures

On October 13, the EU Foreign Ministers of Affairs proposed a set of measures which will control travel flow in Europe to minimise COVID-19 risk. The goal of the proposal is to balance freedom of movement for EU citizens and ensure continuity for businesses and services. Establishing new common criteria to detect COVID-19 infection risk in each country and region, it uses colour mapping and risk evaluation to better anticipate outbreaks and put responsive action into place. ROLZO is extremely dedicated to upholding the best of customer standards, abiding COVID-19 regulations and retaining intimate on-the-road experiences.

Air travel bubble between Hong Kong and Singapore

Recently, Hong Kong and Singapore have established a quarantine-free travel zone as part of an agreement to build links between the two financial hubs. Travellers going through the Air Travel Bubble (ATB) will have to participate in COVID-19 testing to adhere to the government’s regulations. 

“This is a milestone in our efforts to resume normalcy while fighting against the long-drawn battle of Covid-19. Hong Kong and Singapore enjoy long-time close and cordial co-operation on many fronts. I have every confidence that the ATB arrangement can come to fruition very soon to facilitate the resumption of air travel between our two economies.”
