Travel Red List Update: Statement
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “This marks a genuine reopening of international travel and is more great news for holidaymakers. Whether it is for October, half-term, Winter or Summer 22, bookings are up right across the board – more than trebling in some cases. The enormous demand, which has been pent-up for so long, means we are enjoying a strong booking period as customers respond to the assurance that the UK Government is finally giving them.
As the leading tour operator to many leisure destinations across the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, we have over 40 destinations available and they are all proving to be very popular thanks to customer confidence and demand.
Although today’s announcement does not directly impact any of the destinations we are currently operating to, we applaud the Government for the steps it is taking to reopen international travel properly. There is still a way to go and we will continue to call for travel to be made easier, in particular around testing, but we are definitely on the right track. Our programmes for this Winter and Summer 22 are shaping up to be very busy indeed, meaning we are looking ahead with real confidence.”
