Tui has cancelled this summer’s departures from Aberdeen airport as the Covid crisis continues to play havoc with operators’ plans.
The operator confirmed it would not resume flights from the airport until October half term, choosing instead to focus on larger UK airports.
A Tui spokesperson said: “In light of the unprecedented halt on worldwide travel, our teams have been busy reviewing and planning for travel post-Covid-19.
"We’re taking a dynamic approach to restarting our holidays, in line with government advice and the evolving demand for travel, focussing first on flying from our largest UK airports to destinations where we believe air bridge agreements will be in place.
“We’ve therefore had to make the incredibly difficult decision to cancel our summer flying programme from Aberdeen in 2020. However, we plan to resume flights from Aberdeen from 4 October 2020 to ensure they are available in time for the half term holidays.”
Tui said it would operate twice weekly from Aberdeen to Tenerife this winter and bring Aberdeen back for summer 2021, “offering a fuller range of TUI destinations”.
