Low-cost carrier Jet 2 has again delayed the resumption of it flights and holidays programme until July 15.

The group had originally announced plans to resume flights on June 17, but last month this was pushed back by two weeks to July 1.

In an updated statement the carrier’s parent company Dart Group PLC said:

“In view of the ongoing travel restrictions that are in place as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to recommence our flights and holidays programme on July 15. The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is our absolute priority, and we are continuing to monitor the situation very closely.

“We know there is a lot of pent-up demand for our award-winning flights and holidays, and we cannot wait to take customers away on their well-deserved holidays again.”

The group said that customers who were due to travel before July 15 will be contacted to discuss options, “one of which is rebooking their holiday to a later date”.

Dart Group also said that it was “working closely with all relevant authorities to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone enjoying our flights and holidays, and we will be introducing a range of safety measures on our aircraft and transfer vehicles”, details of which will be announced in due course.

In April Dart Group PLC said that early bookings for summer 2021 were looking “very promising”, adding that “encouraging numbers” of customers had chosen to rebook cancelled flights and holidays for late summer 2020 and winter 2020/21, rather than cancel altogether.
