Jet2.com and Jet2holdiays plan to recommence flights and holidays by June 17.
The decision is to be kept “under constant review” so as the airline and operator is operating in line with Foreign Office [FCO] guidance on overseas travel.
The FCO extended its advice against all overseas travel in response to the coronavirus pandemic over the weekend. It had advised against all non-essential travel up to April 15, but now has no set end date on the travel restrictions.
In a statement sent to trade partners this morning, Jet2holidays said: “In view of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to recommence our flights and holidays programme on June 17. We are keeping this decision under constant review, in line with guidance from Governments and the relevant authorities.
“Our commitment to working in partnership with independent travel agents has never been stronger, and we are contacting agents with a number of options for customers, including rebook options. All of these options are designed to help agents look after their customers, so agents do not need to contact us until we are in touch.
“We recognise that these unprecedented events have had a huge impact on our independent travel agency partners, and we would like to thank them for their loyalty, understanding and patience.
“Although these are difficult times for everyone, the sun will come out again. When it does, our award-winning teams will be there to take customers on holiday – a well-deserved package holiday they can trust – once again.”
