Jet2 (LS/EXS) has said that it is cancelling all its flights and holidays until at least the end of April.

The holiday made the announcement in a statement where CEO Steve Heapy said: “As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is advising against all non-essential worldwide travel for a period of 30 days. We have therefore suspended our award-winning flights and holidays departing from the UK until the end of April, and we plan to recommence from May 1st 2020, a decision we will keep under constant review.

“Whilst the health and safety of our customers is of course our number one priority, we are also acutely aware of our responsibility as an award-winning airline and tour operator to look after our customers.”

Jet2 recently asked its Spain bound flights to turn around mid-flight after advice changed to avoid all but essential travel to the region.

Mr Heapy added “This is an enormously fast-moving and complex situation, however customers and independent travel agents can rest assured that our teams are doing the right thing for them.

We are contacting our customers who are currently in destination, and who are due to travel, to advise them of their options. We urge customers not to call us please, as we are experiencing high call volumes. We will be in touch with our customers based on their planned departure date.”
