Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have postponed the restarting of operations this summer by a fortnight due to “ongoing travel restrictions” amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Flights and holidays are now scheduled to resume from 15 July – pushed back from the 1 July date issued by the operator and low-cost airline last month.
“The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is our absolute priority, and we are continuing to monitor the situation very closely. We know there is a lot of pent-up demand for our award-winning holidays, and we cannot wait to take customers away on their well-deserved holidays again,” a spokesperson said.
Jet2 said its commitment to working with independent travel agents “has never been stronger” and it would be contacting trade partners with a range of options.
It added: “We have been very busy looking after customers and independent travel agents through what has been a difficult time for them, and we are looking forward to resuming what we do best – delivering package holidays you can trust.”
Jet2 said it was “working closely with all relevant authorities” to ensure the safety of passengers and guests – and would be introducing a range of safety measures on aircraft and transfer vehicles.
“We are also working closely with airport, hotel and tourist board partners to ensure that appropriate health and safety measures are implemented. Further details will be announced in due course,” the spokesperson added.
