Subject: Court Letter for Home Office charter flights in week commencing Monday 18 January 2021

Dear Robin and Sonia

Please find attached a letter provided today to the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the Upper Tribunal (IAC), regarding the Home Office’s upcoming charter flight to:

  1. Lithuania on 19 January 2021
  2. Albania on 21 January 2021

In light of the ongoing situation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), the letter includes information on the arrangements put in place to mitigate the risk of transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) for returnees at all stages of the process. This covers their movement from Immigration Removals Centres and prisons to the port of departure, during boarding and in flight, and finally on arrival in the country of return. 

Also attached is the order of Walker J and the consent order dated 25 June 2019, which are referred to in the letter.

Kind regards
