The tour operator has told customers who were due to fly to Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza not to go to the airport tomorrow.

Holiday firms TUI and Jet2 have both cancelled all flights and holidays to the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands, having made the decision after the Foreign Office advised against all non-essential travel to the islands earlier this afternoon.

Previously the travel ban only related to mainland Spain, which had led to Jet2 axing all holidays there until August 17th, but now travellers returning from all of Spain to the UK must quarantine for 14 days.

A Jet2 spokesperson said: “Following the latest government advice regarding travel to the Balearic and Canary Islands from the UK, we are advising customers who are due to travel to the following destinations: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza, not to go to the airport tomorrow (Tuesday 28th July) as we are not operating flights to these destinations. This advice also applies to customers travelling to any of our destinations in Mainland Spain."
