Tui cancels host of flights and holiday packages in latest travel update

By Dayna McAlpine

Tui have urged customers to double-check their bookings after the airline announced a whole host of cancellations in their latest travel update.

The budget airline issued a list of countries they are currently operating to - along with flights which they have been forced to cancel due to ‘ongoing uncertainty’ amid coronavirus.

The UK Government is set to announce updates to the red list later this week, following on from the last update three weeks ago.

The Government has also said that by the end of the month holidaymakers will be able to replace the day two PCR test with a cheaper lateral flow test - although no formal date has been announced for this yet.

TUI have advised customers to check the latest advice for latest Covid requirements at their destination.

Due to ongoing uncertainty around travel the following destinations are cancelled:

Up to and including 16th October: Egypt (Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh) and Jamaica

Up to and including 21st October:

TUI flights: Cape Verde, Cuba, Dominican Republic and Mexico

Up to and including 31st October:

TUI flights:

  • Aruba
  • Austria, Italy and Slovenia (TUI Lakes and Mountains)
  • Bulgaria (Varna and Bourgas)
  • Costa Rica
  • Egypt (Marsa Alam)
  • Florida
  • Italy (Calabria, Sardinia and Sicily)
  • Mainland Spain (Almeria and Girona)
  • Malta
  • Montenegro
  • Thailand
  • Tunisia

Non-TUI flights:

Austria, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Seychelles, Tanzania, Thailand and Trinidad & Tobago, USA and UAE (Abu Dhabi)

TUI reassured customers that if a holiday is cancelled then they would receive at least seven days advance notice.

They said that those affected can request a full cash refund, or to change to a later date or alternative holiday with a booking incentive.

The airline added: “We know some customers may be unsure about travelling this summer, so to offer continued flexibility and reassurance, fee-free changes can be made up to 14 days before travel for customers due to depart up to and including 31 October.”
