Holidaymakers heading to Spain have had their flights cancelled by Jet2 without warning.

It is thought that seven flights heading to Spain from the UK this morning were made to turn back before they could land.

In a statement Jet2 said they had made the decision to stop flights to Spain due to measures introduced by the country to stop the spread of coronavirus.

It read;

“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.”
