TUI cancels flights to more than 25 holiday destinations as restrictions change

TUI cancelled flights to more than 25 destinations due to government guidelines changing.

As there is uncertainty about green, amber and red list countries, some trips have been impacted.

The travel firm has cancelled package holidays to British holiday hotspots like Algeria and Girona in Spain after the country was added to the amber list.

In these instances, holidaymakers won’t be able to jet-off to the locations until at least October 31.

This is also the case for flights from Malta, or Sardinia, Sicily and Calabria in Italy.

According to Birmingham Live, a TUI spokesperson said: "We are continually reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with government updates every three weeks.”

Anyone who has been affected by the cancellations can expect a full refund or the option to change their trip to a later date or alternative holiday.

TUI is also offering holidaymakers the option to make fee-free changes to their booking up to 14 days before travel.

Here are all the flights that have been affected:

Up to and including 31 August

  • Florida and Cancun
  • India, Indonesia, Italy (Sicily and Sardinia), Maldives, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand (Phuket), UAE (Abu Dhabi) and USA with non-Tui flights
