Jet2holidays has announced that it will recommence flights and holidays to the Canaries from 30th October onwards, after the UK government removed the islands from the quarantine list.
The leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist will resume flights to Tenerife (commencing from 30th October) as well as Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura (all commencing from 1st November onwards) from all nine of its UK bases (Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted).
As the UK’s largest operator to the Canary Islands, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is recommencing with a programme that offers unrivalled choice and flexibility for British holidaymakers who are looking to get away for some much-needed winter sunshine. Huge demand for this winter sun, coupled with fantastic last-minute deals, means that flights and holidays are expected to sell very fast.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We welcome today’s announcement and we know that our customers, who want to get flying again, will do so too. For some time we have been calling for a proportionate, evidence-based approach to safe travel and this is very much a step in the right direction. There is much to do still, and we look forward to working with government to achieve that.”
“The Canary Islands are hugely important, for us and independent travel agents as businesses, and for our customers as a much-loved holiday favourite too. We know how much our customers want to get away for some winter sun in the Canaries, and they can do this again from 30th October onwards. As the UK’s leading operator to the Canary Islands, we will be restarting with a programme that means independent travel agents can offer customers unrivalled choice and flexibility, as well as all the award-winning benefits that they know and love.”
