Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has suspended flights and holiday’s to Spain’s Balearic and Canary islands, and urged agents to provide clients’ emergency contact details to ensure they get 24/7 support.
The decision comes after the Foreign Office updated its travel advice to advise against all but essential travel to the Balearics and the Canaries, in addition to its earlier advisory against non-essential travel to mainland Spain.
A Jet2 spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday afternoon (28 July) the airline and operator had suspended flights and holidays to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza, departing up to and including 9 August.
It comes just a day after Jet2 suspended flights and holidays to its mainland Spanish destinations, Costa de Almeria, Alicante, Malaga and Murcia, departing up to and including 16 August.
Affected trade bookings will be automatically cancelled and refunded, Jet2holidays has confirmed. “We will also be providing information for customers who are currently in these destinations to advise them of their options regarding flying back to the UK so we urge customers not to contact us," the spokesperson added.
