TUI release latest holiday and flight update - with some destinations cancelled

By Liv Clarke

Holiday firm TUI has updated customers with its latest flying list.

The operator regularly reviews its destinations in line with government updates and has revealed which countries it is currently operating to - and which flights have been cancelled amid ‘ongoing uncertainty’.

This latest announcement comes just ahead of October half term, when many families will be looking to take advantage of relaxed travel rules to jet away.

Earlier this month the pre-departure tests before arrival into England for fully-vaccinated passengers (and children under the age of 18 travelling with their double-jabbed parents) was scrapped, and the day 2 PCR test is expected to be replaced by a lateral flow test later in October.


Significant changes were also made to the UK’s red list, with just seven countries remaining on the list, the government announced.

Travellers should always check the latest FCDO advice for the country they are travelling to.
