Jet2 announce the resumption of flights and holidays to amber destinations- including Spain.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have now resumed flights and holidays to a host of amber list countries just as ‘Freedom Day’ travel rules were relaxed on Monday, July 19, by Boris Johnson.
The lifting of restrictions means that those returning to England from amber countries who have received their full dose of the vaccines – which includes children travelling with them that are under the age of 18 no longer have to quarantine upon their arrival back in the UK.
Over 60 flights were due to take off on Monday, July 19, from the airports of Belfast International, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Stansted, Manchester, and Newcastle airports.
Flights left from the UK on Monday to popular tourist destinations including mainland Spain (Malaga and Alicante), the Balearic and Canary islands, Portugal and Greece.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have also announced that will resume quarantine-free flights and holidays to Dubrovnik and Split from Leeds Bradford, Birmingham, Manchester, London Stansted, Newcastle, and Glasgow Airports because Croatia was recently added to the green list.
“Today marks a big step up for our award-winning operation, as we are now operating flights and holidays to over 40 quarantine-free destinations.
“Feedback from customers and independent travel agents has been telling us for some time that there is enormous pent-up demand from holidaymakers looking to get away this summer, so it is fantastic to see full aircraft taking customers away to their favourite sunshine destinations,” said Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays.
The recent arrival of British tourists has brought optimism to the Costa del Sol hotel sector, which now expects a rebound in this particular international market, although there is a worry that the increase in coronavirus infections in the region of Andalucia may threaten the welcomed return of the holidaymakers.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
