Jet 2 has suspended all flights and holiday packages to the Balearic islands of Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca for the rest of the summer 2020 season.

The low-cost carrier said it had taken the decision “Because of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the current UK government advice”.

Arrivals into the UK from Spain – including the Balearics and Canary Islands – are currently required to quarantine for 14 days, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises against all non-essential travel to the country.

“We are obviously very disappointed to be making this announcement, as we know how much our customers look forward to their well-deserved holidays in these fantastic destinations,” said Jet 2.

“Where customers are affected by any programme changes, we have been repeatedly recognised by independent travel agents for how we have handled this, and we will be automatically cancelling affected trade bookings with a full refund.

“We can assure independent travel agents, customers and our partners in the Balearic Islands that we remain completely committed to these fantastic destinations.

“Bookings for next summer are looking strong, and we cannot wait to be back doing what we do best – working with hoteliers and our partners in Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca to make sure customers enjoy their well-deserved holidays.”

Last week the carrier increased capacity on resumed services to the Portuguese destination of Faro, following “strong customer demand” after the country was added to the UK’s quarantine exemption list.
