Jet2 cancels all flights to Spain, Balearic Islands and Canary Islands with immediate effect

'We know these local measures will have a significant impact on our customers’ holidays which is why we have taken this decision'

Jet2 have cancelled all flights to Spain and the Canary Islands with immediate effect.

The budget airline made the announcement this morning.

It is offering advice to holiday-makers who are in these countries and to those who are due to travel.

The move has been taken as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Jet2 said: “In response to local measures introduced throughout Spain to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including the closure of bars, restaurants, shops and activities including any water sports, we have taken the decision to cancel all flights to Mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands with immediate effect.

“We know these local measures will have a significant impact on our customers’ holidays which is why we have taken this decision.

“We are contacting our customers who are currently in these destinations, and who are due to travel, to advise them of their options, so we urge customers not to call us.

“This is a fast-moving and complex situation and we are reviewing our programme as a matter of urgency, so that we can fly customers back to the UK.

“The health and safety of our customers is our number one priority, and we would like to thank our customers for their understanding.”
