LONDON: British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair have launched legal action against the UK government's quarantine policy, asking for a judicial review to be heard as soon as possible, a statement from BA's parent IAG said.

The airlines said earlier this week they would club together to try to end the 14-day quarantine rule for international arrivals which they say will deter travel and threaten more jobs.
