They say recent confusion has worsened because the advice is separate to the traffic light system drawn up by Ministers.
Insurance policies can be invalidated if government recommendations are neglected.
Also speaking will be France tourism boss Caroline Lebouche and TUI chief Friedrich Joussen.
Representatives from Portugal and Spain will be present too.
Mr Huddleston said: “We are working flat out to put plans in place to restart international travel as soon as it is safe and sustainable to do so.
“This work will help people get back to travelling abroad on holiday and see the UK welcome visitors while making sure we protect public health.”
But Airlines UK boss Tim Alderslade told The Times: “Green and amber countries should not be caught up in additional travel advisories.
“We need to see alignment between the Foreign Office advice and traffic light system to provide clarity and transparency to consumers and operators.”
THE green list is yet to be announced with hopes it will reveal the destinations by May 1.
PC Agency’s Paul Charles has predicted up to 30 destinations could be on the green list, depending on the vaccination rollout and new infections, saying: “As such, it’s highly likely 20-30 countries could be green from the outset.”
For Europe, he says Portugal, Gibraltar and Malta are likely to be the only ones on the list, while popular British hotspots UAE, which includes Dubai, and Maldives could also make it.
The other countries that could be green include:
- Sri Lanka
- St Lucia
- Turks & Caicos
- Falkland Islands
- St Helena
However, government sources have suggested that holiday islands in Spain, Portugal and Greece could also be included.
