We’re really excited to take you on your well-deserved holiday! And while you can expect the same great service from us, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there have been some changes to arrivals into a number of the countries we fly to.

There’s also been a change to arrivals into the UK after you’ve been away. So if you’re planning a holiday or have one booked, it’s really important that you read the information below about the country you’re arriving into.

Please remember that this information is subject to change and correct at the time of publish. We’d also recommend taking a look at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s travel advice: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice

And don’t forget, if you or any of your party are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you’ll not be able to travel. It’s really important you stay at home and follow NHS guidelines to keep yourself, your family and others safe. Find out more here.

Please check this page regularly before you fly, as requirements can change.
