Alicante, Barcelona and Malaga will be affected by the company's decision, which maintains the suspension of operations to the Canary and Balearic Islands

The British airline Jet2.com and its tour operator Jet2holidays have cancelled their operations to the Iberian Peninsula, a decision that affects Alicante, Barcelona and Malaga, for the rest of the 2020 summer season, that is until 31st October this year.

The company has argued that this decision is a response to the "continuing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the recommendations of the UK Government not to travel to Spain".

As for operations to the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote), the company, as announced in a previous press release, is suspending operations until 12 September 2020 inclusive, after which it will resume flights and holiday packages.

In addition, the company has announced that flights to Croatia (Dubrovnik and Split) are also suspended until 31 October 2020.

"We are very disappointed to make this announcement, as we know how much our customers expect their well-deserved holidays in these fantastic destinations," said the company.

Watching the situation "very closely"

A few weeks ago, the company announced the suspension of its operations in the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca) until 30 November.
With regard to reservations for trips to Spain at the end of this year, the company has assured that it will continue to monitor the situation "very closely" and will provide an additional update once it receives more information from the government.

"Once again we urge the government to apply a specific approach to travel advice, rather than the current total ban approach," they have again requested from the company.
