Ryanair, easyJet, Jet2 and Tui latest flights and cancellations

The UK Government has announced the latest changes to its quarantine exemption list of countries.

Travellers entering England from mainland Portugal and Hungary will be required to self-isolate from Saturday, while people arriving from Sweden will no longer have to quarantine after it was added to the travel corridor list.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced on Thursday that Hungary, French Polynesia and Reunion will removed from the travel corridor list, along with Portugal, but excluding the Azores and Madeira regions.

Travellers arriving in England from any of those destinations after 4am on Saturday will have to self-isolate for 14 days.

However, Mr Shapps also said that Sweden would be added to the exemption list, meaning people arriving in England on Saturday will no longer be required to quarantine.

We look at how this has impacted the airlines.

Jet2

Customers who already have bookings with have the option to rebook, with no admin fee, get a refund credit note or a cash refund. Flight only customers can still travel, if they wish to. Those who do not want to can rebook, with no admin fee.

The company has suspended package holidays to Crete (Heraklion and Chania) and Zante for the rest of Summer 2020.

Customers already in these destinations can continue to enjoy their holidays and we will be in touch regarding flights back to the UK.

Jet2 have instead added thousands more seats to locations not affected by quarantine for those wanting to rebook.

The airline are still hopeful of resuming flights to some Spanish islands after September 27, but that could be subject to change.

Ryanair

Unlike Jet2, Ryanair has announced it will continue to fly to many destinations on the quarantine list.

The budget airline has however told customers that the government imposing restrictions does not mean flights will be cancelled or that customers will be entitled to a refund.

If you are someone who does not want to fly and have to self-isolate then you may have to rebook if you are going with Ryanair.

If your flight is cancelled then you will be emailed a voucher to use within 12 months.

EasyJet

EasyJet are another airline which have said they are still flying to some locations that are on the quarantine list, including Spain, for people who are not put off by the quarantine when they return.

According to the airlines website those already booked onto a flight due to depart within 14 days, but who no longer want to travel, you can transfer without a change fee through their website.

However, that information only applies to countries affected by quarantine restrictions and must be made within seven days of the government's announcement.

If you have a flight booked more than 14 days away you can also rebook without a change fee.

For any cancelled flights customers will be contacted directly and be offered a rebooking or refund.

TUI

TUI UK has taken the decision to cancel all holidays to Faro, Portugal up to and including Thursday September 24 2020.

This is because The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advise against all non-essential travel to mainland Portugal and on Thursday the government removed the country from its quarantine exemption list.

All customers will be contacted if their flights have been impacted, and will be offered the chance to rebook or cancel for a full refund.

TUI said in a statement on its website: "Due to the FCDO's advice against all but essential travel to mainland Portugal, TUI UK has cancelled all holidays to Faro, Portugal up to and including Thursday 24 September 2020.
