Jet2 is resuming flights to the Canaries

The move comes after the UK government removed the islands from the quarantine list.

The leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist will resume flights to Tenerife as well as Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura (all commencing from November 1) from all nine of its UK bases - Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted.

Huge demand for this winter sun, coupled with fantastic last-minute deals, means that flights and holidays are expected to sell very fast.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We welcome the announcement and we know that our customers, who want to get flying again from Manchester Airport, will do so too.

"For some time we have been calling for a proportionate, evidence-based approach to safe travel and this is very much a step in the right direction. There is much to do still, and we look forward to working with government to achieve that.”

He added: “The Canary Islands are hugely important, both for us as a business and for our customers as a much-loved holiday favourite.

"We know how much our customers want to get away for some winter sun in the Canaries, and they can do this again from October 30th onwards"
