Jet2 keeps flying to Spain as it removes its Quarantine free promise

Jet2 keeps flying to Spain as it removes its Quarantine free promise”

Shapps had to phone in from Spain to the "crisis meeting" of ministers that removed it from the list of countries exempted from self-quarantine, the newspaper said, sparking ridicule online and further criticism of the government's response to COVID-19.

The government has been urged to introduce "smarter measures" at the border after holidaymakers in Spain were told they must quarantine when they return home.

She said: "We're in a pandemic".

"I will continue to monitor the situation in Spain and other countries and make the changes to the regulations when necessary".

Speaking to Sky News, Flintham said: "If the Balearics are still OK to go to - and clearly the travel advice says you can travel - should we have a different quarantine or no quarantine for those and not lump it all together, as in one big total Spain quarantine?" "That is exactly what we have done in Spain".

"The rate was going up very rapidly in Spain and we had to take very rapid, decisive action".

"We have taken decisive action".

The decision, leaked ahead of an official announcement on Saturday, upset the plans of hundreds of thousands of British tourists sunning themselves on the shores of the Mediterranean and raised the spectre of limits on more countries.

Spain has been removed from the UK's list of safe destinations after it saw a spike in the number of coronavirus cases.

A total of 9,835 flights are scheduled to leave the United Kingdom for Spain between July 26 and August 31, which equates to a total of approximately 1.8 million scheduled seats, according to Aviation data analysts Cirium.

Ryanair is planning to run a full schedule of flights to Spain despite the British government's decision to impose shock restrictions on all non-essential travel to the country.

The FCO now advises against all but essential travel to Spain as the country has seen a significant rise in new Coronavirus cases.

Asked why quarantine measures were also imposed on people returning from Spain's Canary and Balearic islands, despite low levels of Covid-19 infections there, Whately said cases were "also rising quickly on the islands, albeit from a lower base".

TUI UK, part of the TUI holiday company, said it would cancel all holidays to mainland Spain up to August 9, while maintaining flights to the Balearic and Canary islands.

Andrew Flintham, managing director of TUI UK and Ireland, said the government should have a "regionalised" policy.
