Jet2 cancels all flights to the Balearic Islands for remainder of summer

Jet2 has cancelled all flights to the Balearic Islands this summer.

And it has extended the suspension of package holidays to mainland Spain and the Canaries until September 12.

Previously it had suspended resuming flights to the popular holiday destination until the end of August.

Brits visiting Spain or the Spanish Islands must self-isolate for 14 days upon return.

The destination was stripped from the ‘safe’ travel list last month following a surge in cases.

Jet2 has also cancelled all package holidays to Croatia until August 31.

In a statement, the tour operator said the decision was due to the “ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as UK government advice.”

It added: “We have taken the difficult decision to suspend flights and holidays to the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca) for the rest of Summer 20.

“We are obviously very disappointed to be making this announcement, as we know how much our customers look forward to their well-deserved holidays in these fantastic destinations.

“Where customers are affected by any programme changes, we have been repeatedly recognised by independent travel agents for how we have handled this, and we will be automatically cancelling trade bookings with a full refund.

“To give customers more choice when it comes to booking or rebooking their Summer 20 holidays, we are today announcing thousands of new flights, representing almost 100,000 additional seats, to destinations in Greece, Turkey and Portugal.

“The demand for holidays to these destinations tells us that Summer 20 is very much alive in our customers’ minds, and our decision to increase capacity comes in direct response to that demand.

“We can assure independent travel agents, customers and our partners in the Balearic Islands that we remain completely committed to these fantastic destinations.

“Booking for next summer are looking strong, and we cannot wait to be doing what we do best – working with hoteliers and our partners in Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca to make sure customers enjoy their well-deserved holidays.”
