Jet2 issues second lockdown holiday update as additional restrictions announced

Jet2 has issued an update to all of its customers following Boris Johnson’s second lockdown announcement, in which he appeared to ban international travel.

The budget holiday firm issued guidance on Twitter less than a day after the Prime Minister announced a second lockdown which will see Brits confined to their homes from Thursday November 5 to December 2.

Under the new lockdown restrictions, foreign holiday and overnight stays in the UK are banned, and "people cannot travel internationally or within the UK, unless for work, education or other legally permitted exemptions."

Jet2 have since said they're waiting for "clarity" from the government before they announce whether or not all holidays from the UK are cancelled.

In the update, which is correct as of November 1 at 12.30pm, Jet2 said: "Following the UK Government announcement yesterday (October 31) about additional restrictions in England, we are working with the Government to obtain much-needed clarity about what it means for those wishing to holiday overseas.

"We are planning to operate as normal between now and Wednesday 4th November, so customers wanting to get away from the cold and gloom can still book and travel as normal.

"For customers due to depart up to and including Wednesday 4th November, and who do not wish to travel, they can amend their booking to a later date with no admin fee. "

They added: "If glints or holidays are affected by any changes, we will contact customers to advise them of their options.

"Customers in resort should continue to enjoy their holidays as planned.

"Our contact centre is receiving a high volume of enquiries at the moment, so we remind customers that they do not need to contact us.

"We will be in touch with any updates, we would like to thank our customers for their understanding and patience."
