Jet2 and TUI have cancelled a further raft of holidays as countries across Europe and the world close their borders to British holidaymakers.
Sri Lanka became the latest country to announce a ban on UK flights this morning due to fears of a new strain of coronavirus spreading across Britain.
TUI has extended its cancellation of all departures from Luton up to 2 January, and both TUI and Jet2 have cancelled all holidays to the Canary Islands up to and including 5 January following Spain’s ban on all UK tourists.
The UK Foreign Office said the Spanish government had made it clear that the ban included the Canary islands.
Jet2holidays has also cancelled all holidays to Fuerteventura up to and including 7 February.
In addition, Jet2’s departures to Antalya in Turkey and the Portuguese island of Madeira have been cancelled up to and including 5 January. TUI has cancelled Madeira departures only up to 31 December but it is giving customers travelling in January the option to amend their holidays for free. The offer also applies to those due to travel to the Canaries from 6 to 31 January.
