JET2 announces flights to mainland Spain and the Balearics will not resume until February 11th of next year.
The “low-cost leisure airline” resumes flights to the Canary Islands, after it was removed from the quarantine list last week. This means that flights to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria will continue.
Travel expert Paul Charles, from PC Agency informs The Sun that the islands were likely to remain on the safe list. This is due to their testing facilities and infrastructure and makes them a good bet for a holiday.
However, the rest of Spain, which includes Barcelona and Balearic Islands like Ibiza, will not be back until 2021.
Europe is battling a second wave as cases in Spain have soared past one million and France enters second lockdown.
Jet2 explained: “In line with FCDO (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office) travel advice affecting many of our European destinations, we are constantly reviewing our flights and holidays programmes.
“Following a number of recent updates, we would like to advise of our planned restart dates to several destinations which are currently affected by our programme changes.”
The Canary Islands, which includes Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria, are restarting in the next few days.
Antalya in Turkey will also resume on November 15th. Although, the country is still on the UK’s quarantine list. Rome, which is also on the quarantine list, will restart November 26th, Venice flights will not start again until February 2021.
Other destinations in Spain and Portugal will not restart until February 2021 either.
After a surge in demand from holidaymakers, the airline has also been able to add more flights. Rhodes in Greece and Madeira in Portugal also make the list.
There are very few destinations currently open that do not require quarantining on arrival. Greece, the Canary Islands and the Maldives are some of the few.
Other destinations like Cyprus and St Lucia are open but require a negative test pre-arrival, which can cost a big fee. Dubai and Egypt could also see themselves on the travel corridor list, as their numbers remain low.
