Jet2 cancels ALL flights to Spain, Balearic Islands and Canary Islands because of coronavirus

Jet2 has cancelled all its flights to Spain, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands because of coronavirus.

The airline has cancelled flights with immediate effect, and planes that were on route are being diverted back to airports including Birmingham, Leeds Bradford and East Midlands.

A spokesperson said: “In response to local measures introduced throughout Spain to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including the closure of bars, restaurants, shops and activities including any water sports, we have taken the decision to cancel all flights to Mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands with immediate effect. We know these local measures will have a significant impact on our customers’ holidays, which is why we have taken this decision.

“We are contacting our customers who are currently in these destinations, and who are due to travel, to advise them of their options, so we urge customers not to call us.

“This is a fast-moving and complex situation and we are reviewing our programme as a matter of urgency, so that we can fly customers back to the UK. The health and safety of our customers is our number one priority, and we would like to thank our customers for their understanding.”
