Following the latest UK Government Traffic Light review, Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.comand Jet2holidays said:
“We are pleased that our customers can continue to plan and look forward to quarantine-free flights and holidays across more than 40 Green and Amber List destinations, but this is still nothing like a meaningful return to international travel.
“With so many areas of everyday life able to open up properly, it is frustrating that the simple concept of taking a much-needed holiday should still be subject to a different and stricter set of rules. International travel must try and operate with the handbrake applied yet so many other industries can reopen freely.
“The Traffic Light system is due for review in October, and we know this cannot come soon enough for hardworking families and customers. The system needs to be simpler and less confusing for holidaymakers, whilst opening up travel properly.
“For customers due to travel to Amber or Red List destinations, we will be contacting them directly and we also advise that they keep visiting the Traffic Light Update section of our website. Due to the volume of enquiries we are currently receiving, we urge customers and independent travel agents not to contact us so that we can prioritise those who are due to travel.”
