Jet2 cancels more flights to Canary Islands in a blow for holidaymakers

Jet2 has cancelled more flights to the Canary Islands as the destination remains on the quarantine list.

All holidays departing up to and including 26 September have been cancelled.

Flights are set to resume September 27, subject to a further decision by the airline.

Package holidays will automatically be cancelled with customers set to receive a full refund.

The tour operator said in a message to agents: 
”Jet2holidays have taken the decision to extend the suspension of our flights and holidays programme to the Canary Islands due to the continued Covid-19 pandemic.


”We still have plenty of holidays available to alternative destinations including the Algarve, Kos, Rhodes, Corfu, Kefalonia, Cyprus and Turkey next week for your customers to rebook.”

The airline has cancelled more flights due to ongoing restrictions

Last week, the UK tour operator announced it had cancelled all flights to mainland Spain and parts of Croatia for the remainder of the summer.

It follows Spain and Croatia staying on the quarantine list as the number of cases continues to increase.

Flights to the Balearic Islands have already been axed for the rest of the summer.

Summer officially ends in the UK on September 22.

At the time, Jet2 said the decision was due to the “ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as UK government advice.”

On Monday, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said England would start applying a regional approach to its coronavirus quarantine policy for international arrivals.

Mr Shapps said: “Our top priority has always been to keep domestic infection rates down, and today we’re taking the next step in our approach.

“Through the use of enhanced data we will now be able to pinpoint risk in some of the most popular islands, providing increased flexibility to add or remove them – distinct from the mainland – as infection rates change.

“This development will help boost the UK’s travel industry while continuing to maintain maximum protection to public health, keeping the travelling public safe.”
