Jet2 cancels all holidays to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria until December – just weeks after restarting

JET2 has confirmed that all flights and holidays to the Canary Islands have been cancelled until next month.

The tour operator has announced a number of cancellations to their schedule due to the UK lockdown, starting from today.

Until December 2, Brits are not allowed to go abroad on holiday under the new rules.

In the latest wave of cancellations, holidays to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria have been cancelled, with plans to restart on December 3.

It comes just weeks after Jet2 relaunched flights to the islands, after they were removed from the UK's quarantine list.

In a statement, they explain: "Due to the latest government advice, we have taken the decision to suspend flights and holidays from England to the Canary Islands between November 5 and December 2 inclusive, and we plan to restart from December 3."

They added that this means no flights will be departing, and just limited arriving flights will be operating to help holidaymakers return to the UK.

There are also limited flights running from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast Airport.

The Canary Islands have already been left "devastated" by the lockdown after hoping for a winter season revival.

Despite Spain's soaring cases, the islands began welcoming British tourists back last month, with bargain deals encouraging last-minute holidays.

Now, some hotels may be forced to permanently close while others are likely to remain shut until next summer.

From November 14, there are new restrictions in place for any arrivals to the Canary Islands.

A negative coronavirus test will be required, including for British tourists entering the islands.

These cannot be done on the NHS and can be pricey – here is everything you need to know about getting one for your next holiday.
