As the most popular holiday destinations are removed from the list of approved trips to the UK, holidays abroad are once again called into question.The Foreign Ministry has already advised against traveling to mainland Spain and Portugal due to an increase in coronavirus cases, while spikes in other regions are cause for concern.

While holidaymakers arriving in Cyprus will be subject to similar conditions after declaring the UK a “country at risk”.

It was confirmed last night that travelers arriving in England from Belgium, Andorra and the Bahamas will now have to quarantine for 14 days upon their return.

If you’ve booked a vacation or are planning to travel in the near future, here are the latest updates from major UK airlines flying to popular vacation destinations.

Tui

The tour operator has canceled all flights and vacations in Portugal with immediate effect and is currently in the process of contacting customers directly. They have no plans to resume service until at least August 17, North Wales Live reports.

They have also extended their cancellations to mainland Spain until August 17, when its schedule for the Balearics and Canaries is expected to restart from Tuesday August 11.

The tour operator said customers with flights this month to Portugal, mainland Spain or its islands can change their booking and receive an incentive to change their booking – or cancel and receive a full refund.

And TUI has also suspended flights to Cyprus, although it has promised that these will “start again soon”.

And according to their website, their flights resume from Manchester on August 15.

Ryanair



Ryanair does not plan to cancel any flights to Spain

Ryanair still operates flights to mainland Portugal, with seats available to be reserved through the website.

And airline bosses have confirmed that they also wouldn’t expect to cancel flights to Spain, despite the two countries being removed from the list of air corridors.

In an interview with the BBC’s Today program, its chief financial officer said that “the timetables remain in place”.

Neil Sorahan added that the airline “continues to operate in Spain and out of Spain as usual” but said the entire schedule would be kept “under review”.

And like its competitor EasyJet, Ryanair has yet to cancel flights to Cyprus this month.

Jet2

The airline has confirmed that it has temporarily suspended its holidays in mainland Portugal after the announcement.

This will particularly affect flights to Faro (Algarve), with cancellations pending until August 17.

They have also suspended travel to mainland Spain, with flights and vacations also canceled until at least August 17 – including to destinations such as Malaga, Alicante and the Costa de Almeria.

Jet2 has also canceled flights to Larnaca and Paphos in Cyprus for next week.

The airline has said flights are expected to resume to these destinations from August 17 – although that depends on Cypriot authorities reviewing its entry criteria.

EasyJet

The airline advised passengers to call its contact center if they preferred to receive a voucher instead.

Normal terms and conditions apply for flights outside of 14 days – although the change fee has been waived.

Moreover, EasyJet did not cancel its trip to Cyprus despite the restrictions on the European island.

British Airways

British Airways says its flights to Spain continue to operate normally.

However, travelers can cancel their reservation and claim a voucher to make a new reservation at a later date.

A statement on their website reads: “The UK government has changed its advice for people traveling to and from Spain.
