TUI cancels thousands of holidays due to green list uncertainty

One of the UK’s largest airlines has announced that it will cancel a number of public holidays due to the uncertainty on the green list.

The British have been hoping to go abroad this year as coronavirus restrictions continue to be lifted, but it seems that getting to another country may be more difficult than thought.

The government recently announced plans to change Portugal from its yellow to a green list, which would see thousands of Britons returning to the country.

But it seems that TUI has now canceled some of its flights to certain countries.

The following holidays have been canceled until July 5th, according to information Travel weekly :

  • Greece – Crete, Kavala, Kefalonia, Mykonos, Preveza, Samos, Santorini, Skiathos, Thessaloniki
  • Spain – mainland Spain, Formentera, Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca, La Palma
  • Cyprus
  • Croatia
  • Italy
  • Malta
  • Aruba
  • Jamaica

Holidays canceled until July 11th are:

  • Bulgaria
  • Tunisia
  • Egypt
  • Morocco
  • Mexico
  • Turkey
  • Cape Verde
  • Costa Rica
  • Dominican Republic

TUI said: “We want to offer our customers flexibility and choice this summer. If the borders are open and the FCDO advice enables travel, we will approach these destinations as planned.

“We are constantly reviewing our vacation schedule and cancellations every three weeks in line with government updates, with the next update expected on June 24th.

“All customers will be contacted as soon as possible if their booking changes.”
