TUI, Ryanair and Jet2 share the earliest dates flights and vacations can start again


The Department of Foreign Affairs currently recommends that people do not go abroad “indefinitely” in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus, but many hope that the lockout restrictions will be lifted in time to plan a trip this summer.

While the planes remain immobilized for the time being, several of the largest airlines have begun to give the exact dates for the planes’ restart, reports Mirror Online.

Of course, as things evolve both at home and abroad, these dates may change – and that’s before we get to the fact that most countries currently don’t allow the British to enter.

But to offer a glimmer of hope for an upcoming vacation, here’s when TUI, Jet2 and Ryanair start accepting the reservation again from:


Tui announced plans to resume flying on June 17.

But all holidays up to and including May 14, and all Marella Cruise holidays up to and including May 31, will not be done.

A Tui spokesperson said, “We are constantly monitoring the situation and will start taking people away on vacation as soon as we can.”

By posting an update on Twitter, TUI told customers not to contact them, but to go to their website for the latest information.

“These are uncertain times for all of us and we do not underestimate the impact on those of you who have vacation vacations,” said the message.

“For this reason, we made the difficult decision to cancel all holidays until May 14, inclusive.

“Our promise to travel still stands, because it is important to us to give you the vacation you deserve.

“That means you can make free changes to any public holiday until June 30, even if you have to travel between April 17 and May 14. “

Jet2 has stated that it will not resume flights until June.

A spokesperson told Mirror Money: “Given the continuing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we made the decision to resume our flight and vacation schedule on June 17.

“We are keeping this decision under constant review, in accordance with the directives of governments and competent authorities. “

“Customers who had to travel before this date do not need to contact us. We proactively contact customers on the departure date to discuss their options, one of which is to book their vacation at a later date. We know how important a vacation is to our customers and how much they give customers something to look forward to, especially in difficult times like these.

“We recognize that these unprecedented events have had a huge impact on our customers, and we would like to thank them for their loyalty, understanding and patience.

“Although it is a difficult time for everyone, the sun will rise again. In this case, our award-winning teams will be there to take customers on vacation – a well-deserved stay they can trust – once again. “


Ryanair has immobilized 90% of its flights, but will continue to operate on a limited schedule.

Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary has confirmed that a normal commercial flight schedule would not return until June 17.

Until then, the airline waives the change fees for all flights booked until the end of May, which can be changed until the end of August.

A statement reads: “As most EU countries have imposed flight bans or other restrictions, more than 90% of Ryanair’s planes are immobilized for the next few weeks.

“We will respect these restrictions at all times. We are working with EU governments to try to keep certain minimum air routes open for emergency reasons, even if the passenger load on these flights is very low.

“All the planes are disinfected daily. With low charges, social distance is optimized on board. We ask all passengers to cooperate fully with our crews who do their best in difficult times to maintain vital links to / from Ireland and to / from the UK to help our passengers and their families cope with emergencies that may require urgent travel in the coming days and weeks.

“Ryanair sincerely apologizes for the unprecedented grounding of our aircraft fleet and any schedule disruption this may have caused, but we must all work with EU governments to minimize the impact of COVID- 19 on our citizens and our health services. “


Low-cost airline easyJet said it has no set date to start flying again.

A spokesperson told Mirror Money: “At this point there can be no certainty as to when commercial flights will resume and we are constantly evaluating based on changing regulations and customer demand. .

“We have an ongoing cancellation program in place and are working on it after the sale ended in April.

“Once we have identified a flight for cancellation, we will prevent other passengers from booking and inform passengers of the cancellation and their options. “

But there has been good news for people who have already booked trips.

“For customers whose flights are not canceled but who wish to change to a later date, they can modify their flight online without modification costs and we have advanced our winter timetable for sale so that customers have more choices to move their flights until February 28, 2021, “added the spokesperson.
