The news comes as the Canary Islands have been added to the UK’s travel lanes, meaning Brits returning after 4 a.m. on Sunday 25 October will no longer need to quarantine.
The FCDO has also changed its mind and no longer advises against non-essential travel to the Canary Islands. (However, he still advises against traveling to mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands).
The company will relaunch flights to Tenerife from Friday October 30, then to Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura from Saturday November 1.
There will be packages available from all of its UK bases; Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted.
Steve Heapy, PDG de Jet2.com and Jet2holidays welcomed the announcement, explaining that the Canary Islands are “extremely important are extremely important, both to us as a business and to our customers as a much-loved vacation favorite. ”
He said in a statement: “We welcome today’s announcement and know that our customers, who wish to fly back on the plane, will as well.
“We have been calling for a proportionate, evidence-based approach to safe travel for some time now and this is definitely a step in the right direction. Much remains to be done and we look forward to working with the government to achieve it. ”
It’s not just Jet2 that offers vacations to the Canary Islands – other travel giants, including British Airways, easyJet Holidays and Thomas Cook, also offer packages.
It should be noted that currently, as part of the three-tier lockdown system, the government advises Britons to avoid travel if they are in one of the higher alert levels (levels 2 and 3).
