Jet2 cancels all flights to Spain as the country goes into lockdown!

JET2 has cancelled all flights to Spain due to coronavirus!

Spanish authorities confirmed a 15 day state of emergency would begin from today after it became the second worst hit country in Europe.

Jet2 said in a statement the measures had been introduced after Spain confirmed bars, restaurants and shops would be closed from midnight last night with tourists told to stay indoors in a bid to stop the spread of the virus.

The government will now have wide-ranging powers from confining people and ordering evacuations.

Spain currently has one of the worst outbreaks of coronavirus in the world, with more than 5,000 cases and 133 deaths.

Jet2 said: “We have taken the decision to cancel all flights to Mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands with immediate effect.”

“We are contacting our customers who are currently in these destinations, and who are due to travel, to advise them of their options, so we urge customers not to call us.

“This is a fast-moving and complex situation and we are reviewing our programme as a matter of urgency, so that we can fly customers back to the UK.

“The health and safety of our customers is our number one priority, and we would like to thank our customers for their understanding.”
