Tui urged customers to recheck their bookings after the airline announced a slew of cancellations in its latest travel update.
Yesterday, the low-cost airline released a list of the countries it currently operates to – as well as flights it has been forced to cancel due to “lingering uncertainty” amid the coronavirus.
The UK government is expected to announce updates to the Red List later this week, following the last update three weeks ago.
The government has also said that by the end of the month, vacationers will be able to replace the second-day PCR test with a cheaper lateral flow test – although no official date has yet been announced for this.
TUI has advised customers to check out the latest tips for the latest Covid requirements at their destination.
