The spread of coronavirus has no doubt brought a lot of business to a halt, and the air transportation sector is no exception. Some major flights have been forced to be grounded due to the pandemic and Jet2 has also been affected. They initially cancelled all flights and holiday packages on the 7th of April to uphold till the 17th of June a decision which was made after the Foreign Office warned against overseas travels indefinitely.
Not to fear, the airline said it would be in contact with all its affected customers to be compensated (which means customers are entitled to a full refund within 14 days). However, it’s important to note that all bookings scheduled to depart before this given date is cancelled due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
The move does not validate that all planned Jet2 operations will immediately restart on the 17th of June.
The spokesperson said:
“We are keeping this decision under constant review, in line with guidance from governments and the relevant authorities.”
Even though they recently confirmed the date of which operation continues, they also said this is depending on the lockdown situation, having extended their initial cancellation period from the 1st of May. They are giving emergency services to workers, giving them a chance to make sure they have a holiday to look forward to this year.
Jet2 has announced it will amend any planned holidays in a bid to “thank the brilliant NHS and emergency service workers, who are working tirelessly during this difficult time” -amid the pandemic.
If you have booked a holiday this summer, you may be wondering when travel firms are expecting to fly. It’s best you contact the airline if they haven’t already contacted you and most likely rebook to a later date.
