Ryanair and Jet2 have both been impacted by the coronavirus crisis, as have all airlines. The latter has been very quick to cancel flights following Government travel bans. The two issued new travel advice for customers today.

Jet2

Jet2 has cancelled all flights and holidays up to and including May 16 2021.

“If you’ve been affected by these programme changes, we’ll be automatically cancelling your booking with a full refund,” the airline states on its website.

“If you’re due to travel from May 17, 2021, onwards, we’ll provide an update closer to the time.”

Customers who booked via a third party, such as an online travel agent, must get in touch with them in order to claim their refund.

Today, the holiday operator announced that, following the news that Turkey was reopening to unvaccinated and untested travellers, bookings to the hotspot had doubled.

Jet2.com revealed it had put over 100 additional flights on sale to Turkey, giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility.

Extra capacity has been added to Antalya, Bodrum and Dalaman with additional flights operating from late-June to late-October, with a focus on the late-Summer season.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Turkey has continued to be a popular choice, and the welcome news that UK holidaymakers can enjoy the Turkish sunshine this summer has translated into an immediate rush of bookings.

“We already have a fantastic choice on sale to Turkey from across our network of UK bases, and these additional flights and holidays come in direct response to the demand that we have been seeing.

“Once again, customers are telling us that they want to get away, and once again we are quick to respond to that – giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice when it comes to getting away on a real package holiday.”

Ryanair

Ryanair has issued a number of updates today concerning new flight routes and its flight change fee.

The airline announced it is extending its zero flight change fee for all customers who book before June 30, 2021.

“Ryanair customers can now book their well-deserved summer break safe in the knowledge that if their plans change, they can move their travel dates twice with zero change fee until the end of October 2021,” said the carrier in a statement.

Ryanair has announced a new Liverpool to Kaunas (Lithuania) route from June 4, 2021, flying twice a week as part of Ryanair’s UK Summer 2021 schedule.

To celebrate, Ryanair has launched a seat sale with fares available from just €24.99 for travel until the end of October 2021, which must be booked by midnight Sunday, March 21, on the Ryanair.com website.

Ryanair also revealed it is launching a new Birmingham to Poznan (Poland) route, from 3rd July 2021, flying twice a week as part of Ryanair’s UK Summer 2021 schedule.

“To celebrate this new Poznan route, we are launching a seat sale with fares available from just £24.99 for travel until the end of October 2021, which must be booked by midnight Sunday, March 21, 2021,” said Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness.
