Continuing on his website, he said: “The UK government has confirmed that international travel is now legal.
“However, certain conditions are in place for people returning from different destinations, known as the traffic light system.
“The British government is committed to reviewing its ‘status’ as traffic lights for overseas destinations every three weeks.
“We will be reviewing our program and policies according to this timeline. Our last review was May 13, 2021.
“We plan to do another review on or around June 1, 2021 and every three weeks thereafter.
“As the UK government has previously decided not to notify us in advance of any change in entry requirements for different countries, please support us as we need to take the time to consider any changes to our program and policies . “
So what are the rules now? Here’s what Jet2 says about its destinations:
Customers should check all applicable regulations at the chosen destination, as well as its current status under the UK ‘traffic light’ system at least 14 days prior to travel.
