Flights: easyJet, Jet2, TUI, Ryanair and BA updates before greenlist extension | Travel News | Trip
Ahead of the potential extension of the Green List tomorrow, what are the latest updates from easyJet, Jet2, Ryanair, British Airways and TUI?
easyJet has made a limited number of flights throughout the pandemic to some destinations, but has since increased its offer.
The airline has also restarted package holidays under its own “traffic light” system which operates on government advice.
Although some destinations remain closed to Britons according to official government advice, easyJet says it has already seen an increase in bookings to Orange countries such as Spain.
When Portugal was added to the UK’s green list, easyJet added 105,000 additional seats to the country.
If other vacation hot spots turn green, the orange-tipped transporter might do the same again.
As the airline operates some flights to orange destinations, it is warning customers to comply with testing and quarantine requirements.
As part of its package holidays branch, easyJet Holidays explains on its website that “vacations to ‘green’ destinations can take place, with a few steps to keep in mind” while “vacations to destinations” amber ”can take place if you are happy to travel and follow government-defined reintegration steps. “
The Luton-based airline has partnered with Randox to provide COVID-19 test kits to customers who need to take them.
Holidays and flights to “red list” destinations will not take place.
“In keeping with our industry-leading easyJet protection promise, we will not be making any travel to destinations on the ‘red’ list upon departure,” continues the orange-tipped carrier.
“But as listings may change and destinations may change to ‘orange’ or ‘green’, you may still be able to book vacations currently selected on the ‘red’ list and we will be watching future vacations closely.
“You can make changes or cancel your vacation if you are more than 28 days from your departure date, and now you can make changes within 28 days knowing that if your destination remains on the ‘red’ list, we will cancel all reservations no later than seven days before departure. “
As part of easyJet’s specially developed “Promise of Protection”, customers will have the right to rearrange their entire vacation free of charge, up to 28 days prior to travel.
