Earlier this week in the news it was announced that some aspects of the lockdown would be relaxed here in Spain which was mainly in the manufacturing area to aid the economy. As we are seeing the health benefits of the lockdown possibly affecting numbers of those infected the spirit of hope is growing that we are closer to the end of this period.
Currently all non-essential flights to and from Spain have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. On the horizon though there is a glimmer of hope as this week some airlines announced when they expect to resume flights. Jet2, Ryanair and TUI are the airlines that have announced when they will resume flights.
In a statement this week, Jet2 said: “In view of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to recommence our flights and holidays programme on June 17.
CEO of Ryanair Michael O’Leary said the airline will return to a normal schedule of commercial flights in June.
TUI has cancelled all trips until May 14 and Marella Cruise holidays until June. However, the dates are subject to change. In a statement, the tour operator said they would “continue to amend and adapt timings in line with the latest global travel advice”. A spokeswoman of for the group added: “We are constantly monitoring the situation and will start taking people on holiday again as soon as we are able to do so.”
These three airlines fly into many of the Spanish airports, so it will be a great day when travel restrictions are lifted and we are free to get to our favourite places once again.
This is all good news and although everyone will need to follow FCO advice on where they can travel and when, the future is looking brighter. Great news in fact for those that already have flights booked.
