Ryanair

Ryanair reduces its flight capacity by almost 20% in September and October.

British Airways

British Airways customers can change the dates and destination of their reservation without incurring any change fees, although they will be charged any price difference.

Jet2

Jet2 recently announced that it will resume flights to Spain, the Canaries and the Balearic Islands next weekend, although the country remains on the UK’s quarantine list.

Flights to Portugal also restarted this week after the country was added to the “safe” list.

A spokesperson said: “Due to government travel advice in all parts of Spain, we have made the decision to suspend flights and vacations to mainland Spain (Alicante and Malaga), the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote) and the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza) until August 29 inclusive.

“For bookings to travel to mainland Spain, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands from August 30, we will provide an additional update once we receive further confirmation from the government.

“No one wants customers to vacation on vacation more than we do, and we once again urge the government to implement a targeted approach to travel advice, instead of the current blanket ban approach.

“We would like to thank our customers for their continued patience and understanding. “
