Jet2: Airline plans more vacations and flights as it delays restart date | Travel News | Trip


The popular low-budget airline has pushed back its restart date from July 1 to July 15. Jet2 has also vowed to transport its customers only to countries where quarantine rules do not apply. Some countries, like France, ask the British who arrive in the country to quarantine for 14 days.

Social media site Twitter has been inundated with angry tweets to the budget airline.One user said: “# jet2 not happy because we canceled our holiday for August 18 – to re-book £ 400 more for the same date / offer. ”

Another said, “It looks like Jet2 has canceled all of its [sic] Flights Manchester – Kalamata until 2021.

“It will have a big impact on hotels, etc. in the Mani region. “

Another angry user said on the platform, “Does anyone know what the situation is with Jet2?

“I had booked a flight for July 17 which they say is now canceled – but ALL THEIR FLIGHTS SEEM CANCELED, and there appears to be no way to contact them. ”

A Jet2 spokesperson said there is travel uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They said: “We will be implementing a revised program for summer 20 and we look forward to accompanying our customers on our award winning flights and package tours.

“Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus crisis, there is a reduction in the number of routes on sale and a lower frequency of services for the summer of 20.

“We will not be flying and vacationing to Jersey, Mykonos, Santorini, Kalamata, Halkidiki, Lesbos, Nice and Verona this summer, and further reductions are underway at our nine UK bases.

“We are also in the process of making changes to our schedules. ”

Jet2 also said they were hoping to get more information on “airlift” so that their customers can start planning their vacation.

They added: “We will release details of our full summer 20 program very soon.

“We will only take customers to non-quarantine destinations, so we are asking the government to provide urgent clarity on the airlift so that customers can plan their vacations.”

An airlift, also known as an air corridor, is a bilateral travel agreement between the United Kingdom and another country, which means that people would not need quarantine upon arrival in the other country or upon their return.
