Jet2 has announced that it is cancelling more flights to the Canary Islands as the Foreign Office continues to warn against ‘all but essential travel’ to the holiday hotspots.
The travel firm said that it will be cancelling more flights to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, until the 17th October 2020.
It shared an update with customers on its official Twitter page, adding that for anyone with a holiday booked from the 18th October 2020 onwards, an additional update will be given closer to the time.
Originally, the airline was looking to resume routes towards the end of September, but as the Foreign Office advice hasn’t changed, they have extended the cancellations.
Customers who are affected are currently being contacted and offered either a full refund, credit vouchers, or the option to rebook for a later date.
The tour operator recently revealed it would have to cancel holiday packages to Faro in Portugal until the 31st October 2020, as a result of the country’s mainland being on the ‘all but essential’ travel list.
Other affected destinations include mainland Spain and part of Croatia.
