Jet2, the Leeds-based travel company has extended its suspension of flights until April due to the ‘ongoing uncertainty and travel restrictions’ that have been caused by the COVID-19 virus.
In a statement posted on their social channels the company stated that: “Due to the ongoing uncertainty and travel restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to extend the suspension of flights and holidays up to and including April 14 2021.”
“Where customers yet to travel are affected by any programme changes, our industry-leading and prompt refunding of over 1billion has been widely praised, and we will continue to automatically cancel affected bookings with a full refund.”
The Government recently said that they are “doing everything they can” so that people can enjoy their summer holidays. SAGE professor, Andrew Hayward said Britain “will be more or less back to normal for the summer” as vaccination levels increase.
Coronavirus cases continue to fall, and one in four of the population have had at least their first dose of the vaccine. Anyone travelling into the UK must now quarantine in a hotel for 10 days in Government allocated hotel rooms – even if they receive a negative result. Their stay will cost £1,750, Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced.
It looks like staycations may be the popular choice more most holiday-goers this year with all the uncertainty due to the pandemic.
