Greece holidays: TUI, easyJet, BA, Ryanair & Jet2 cancel all flights as ban extended

The new rule applies to direct flights and it is not yet known whether those arriving indirectly from the UK will be prevented from entering.

The news has thrown flights due to fly to Greece into chaos.

All airlines operating flights up until July 15 have had to axe services.

DON’T MISS

Those customers whose flights have been cancelled will be contacted and provided options regarding a refund or transfer.

An easyJet spokeswoman told Express.co.uk: “Following yesterday’s announcement by the Greek authorities, we will being reviewing our flying schedule and any customers whose flights are required to be cancelled as a result of any restrictions will be notified and informed of their options which include a free of charge transfer, a voucher for the value of their booking or a refund.”

A TUI UK spokeswoman told Express.co.uk: “In accordance with updated advice from the Greek Government, our planned flights to Greece between 11-14 July won’t go ahead.

“When we announced our plans to re-start summer holidays, we always said they were subject to Government guidelines.

“We’ll continue to monitor these and update our holiday programme as needed.”

A BA spokeswoman said: “We recommend all customers check for the latest information on their flight at ba.com.”

Meanwhile, Jet2 is currently offering free flight changes to all flights before July 15.

All airlines have ramped up their health and safety measures amid coronavirus as they return to the skies.

Face masks will need to be worn during flights – and should be changed every four hours.

Plane cabins are also being fitted with superior air filters and cleaned regularly.

Food and drink services on airlines are likely to be reduced as well.

The Department for Transport has suggested airlines “limit duty free or other non-essential product sales on board and accompany these with procedures to minimise the contact between crew and passengers.”

They also suggest carriers “reduce the food and drink service” and reduce “movement of passengers within aircraft.”
