When does TUI restart flights and holidays to the Balearic Islands and Canary Islands?

New travel advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advises against all but essential travel to Spain.

In light of this, TUI, along with other airlines, has suspended flights to the country. 

Currently flights to mainland Spain have been cancelled until Monday 17 August, whereas flights to the Balearic and Canary Islands have been cancelled until Monday 10 August. 

The move from the UK government comes after Spain saw a spike in coronavirus cases in several regions, particularly in Aragon, Navarra and Catalonia. 

Spain was also removed from the government’s list of countries that are exempt from travel quarantine rules on return to England.

Travellers arriving back from Spain will now face a mandatory 14 day period of self-isolation, and be required to provide their journey and contact details. 

However they are still not currently required to self-isolate when they arrive in Spain, but may be subject to temperature checks and a health assessment. 

The FCO is not advising travellers who are currently in Spain to cut their visit short, but recommend holidaymakers contact their airline to ensure they are able to fly home. 

When will TUI restart flights to Spain?

Currently TUI flights should resume operating to the Balearic and Canary Islands from 10 August, however the airline could extend the flight suspension if government advice does not change.

If you are due to go on holiday with TUI after 10 August, you should keep checking back to see the status of your flight.

Spain’s Tourism Minister, Reyes Maroto, has said during an interview on a Spanish radio station that the British government has given a period of ten days for the review of the imposed quarantine. 

Other airlines such as Ryanair, British Airways and EasyJet have continued to operate flights to mainland Spain, and the Balearic and Canary Islands despite the change in government advice.
