Jet2holidays has cancelled holidays to The Algarve, Malaga and Alicante until February 10, 2021.

The operator had previously suspended programmes to the destinations until October 31 but said it had taken the decision to extend the suspension until early next year due to the continued Covid-19 pandemic.

Flights to the Canary Islands are still currently suspended until October 31, as are those to Barcelona in addition to Turkey, Croatia, Crete and Zante. Flights to the Balearic Islands are suspended until November 30.

In a message to travel agents, Jet2 said all holidays to The Algarve, Malaga and Alicante up to and including February 10 would be automatically cancelled with a full refund issued.

It said flights would start to recommence from February 11, subject to its flying programme.

All the destinations currently suspended by Jet2holidays remain off the government’s safe lists, meaning the Foreign Office advises against travel and those who do so are required to self-isolate for 14 days on their return.

At the weekend, the operator announced it was adding additional capacity to Rhodes and Madeira, which remain on the safe lists, due to strong demand for the two islands.
