Tui, EasyJet, BA and Ryanair update quarantine list following spike in Coronavirus

Daily Mail has announced a recent spike in COVID-19 cases could result in more countries added to the quarantine list, the news source said.

New figures revealed a spike in Covid-19 cases in Greece, Denmark, Portugal, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Poland and Austria.

The news comes just days after France and six other countries were removed from the safe-to-travel list – meaning travellers will have to self-isolate for 14 days upon returning to the UK.

The quarantine list, which currently has more than 150 destinations, continues to grow over fears that countries across the world could be hit by a second wave of coronavirus.

The threshold for putting countries on the quarantine list is 20 cases per 100,000 on a seven-day rolling average.

Jet2, EasyJet, Tui, Ryanair, and BA have issued flight updates after the latest quarantine announcement.

EasyJet confirmed that they are monitoring the situation closely but are currently still offering flights to and from the listed areas.

Tui confirmed that no holidays will go ahead to any destination where a customer will be required to quarantine on arrival or upon return to the UK.

Since there has been no official update to the quarantine list by the UK Government, Ryanair is currently still running flights. However, the airline has confirmed they will be reducing flight capacity by 20% in September and October due to uncertainty over recent Covid case rates in some EU countries.

Jet2 previously said it plans to continue flights to affected destinations, despite the Foreign Office´s recent advice against all but essential travel.

British Airways (BA) announced they would continue to operate flights to a number of destinations on the quarantine list.
