TUI flights to Spain and Greece available from July

Holiday company TUI have announced that flights to Spain and Greece will resume in three weeks time.

This announcement comes after Spain said it would be lifting a two-week quarantine for UK tourists entering the country.

Travellers wil be allowed to fly to eight destinations across Greece and Spain from Saturday 11th July.

This includes the Greek islands of Crete, Rhodes, Kos and Corfu, Tenerife and Lanzarote.

Holidays to the Canary Islands, and Mallorca and Ibiza in the Balearics will also be available.

TUI’s Commercial director Richard Sofer said he has “absolute confidence” that the UK government will lift the 14-day quarantine rule for those entering the UK by then.

Mr Sofer said:

“Due to the size of our organisation we’ve been able to have a presence in each of those government conversations through our aviation team or through the senior members of the UK business.

“We’re well-informed of where those discussions are.

“Obviously many of those conversations are confidential but that gives us great confidence to open up a small programme to a couple of really key countries, eight key gateways for us.

“We have absolute confidence that we’re going to be getting a positive result from the government in time for July.”

TUI has already resumed holidays from Germany, with trips to Portugal’s Algarve running this week whilst enforcing social distancing rules.

Irish airline Ryanair have started to schedule flights to Spain from 21st June while Jet2holidays are planing to restart its flights from the 15th July.
