WASHINGTON, May 3 (Reuters) - A coalition of U.S. and European travel, airline, union, business and airport groups on Monday called for fully reopening the U.S.-UK air travel market "as soon as safely possible." 

  In a letter to U.S. President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the groups said the leaders' planned meeting in early June "would be an ideal opportunity for a joint announcement of the full reopening of the U.S.-UK air travel market for both U.S. and UK citizens." 

  The United States has barred nearly all non-U.S. citizens who have recently been in the UK since March 2020 from the United States. (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
