Jet2holidays and Jet2.com have announced that they will be relaunching Canary Islands holidays and flights from next week.
The travel giant is set to relaunch packages to the hotspots from Friday 30th October 2020.
The news comes as the Canary Islands have been added to the UK’s travel corridors, meaning that Brits who return after 4am on Sunday 25th October will no longer need to quarantine.
The FCDO has also changed its advice and no longer advises against non-essential travel to the Canary Islands. (However, it still advises against travel to mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands).
The firm will relaunch flights to Tenerife from Friday 30th October, and then to Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura from Saturday 1st November.
There will be packages available from all of its UK bases; Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays welcomed the announcement, explaining that the Canary Islands are a “hugely important are hugely important, both for us as a business and for our customers as a much-loved holiday favourite.”
He said in a statement: “We welcome today’s announcement and we know that our customers, who want to get flying again, will do so too.
“For some time we have been calling for a proportionate, evidence-based approach to safe travel and this is very much a step in the right direction. There is much to do still, and we look forward to working with government to achieve that.”
It’s not just Jet2 offering offering Canary Islands holidays – other travel giants including British Airways, easyJet Holidays and Thomas Cook also have packages on offer.
It is worth noting that currently, under the three-tier lockdown system, the government is advising Brits to avoid travelling if they are in one of the higher alert levels (Tier 2 and Tier 3).
