Jet2 passengers in Spain are being urged to cut their holidays short or they won’t be able to return home with the airline.
The popular carrier announced this week that it is cancelling all flights to mainland Spain, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands following new government restrictions.
Jet2 customers are being told they have to return by Monday August 3.
“Following the latest government advice regarding travel to the Balearic and Canary Islands from the UK, we have taken the decision to suspend flights and holidays to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza up to and including August 9.
“We have already suspended flights and holidays to our destinations in Mainland Spain (Costa de Almeria, Alicante, Malaga and Murcia) up to and including 16th August.
“We are operating empty outbound flights to pick up customers from these destinations up to and including 3rd August, and we are contacting customers who are currently in these destinations to advise them of their options regarding flying back to the UK.
“We appreciate that some of our package holiday customers were due to stay on holiday for longer than this and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
“It is important to note that we are responding to a very fast-moving situation with updates coming from the government with little or notice, and we have had to make decisions about our programme accordingly.
“We can assure these customers that we will be in touch with them to resolve any issues that they may have.”
