Jet2 flights and holidays to mainland Spain have been axed.
They will restart again on August 17.
The news comes after the UK government announced on Saturday night that Britons would have to quarantine on their return home after cases spiked in Spain.
A Jet2 spokesperson said: “Following the latest government advice regarding travel to Mainland Spain from the UK, we have taken the decision to suspend our flights and holidays programme to Costa de Almeria, Alicante, Malaga and Murcia from 28th July up to and including 16th August.
“Where customers are affected by any programme changes, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has been repeatedly recognised by media, consumer organisations and customers for how we have been looking after customers, offering the option to rebook with no admin fee, Refund Credit Notes or full cash refunds, and we will be contacting customers to discuss these options.
“We will also contact customers who are currently in Mainland Spain to advise them of their options regarding flying back to the UK, so we urge customers not to contact us.
“For customers who are due to travel to Mainland Spain from 17th August onwards, we will provide an additional update once we receive further information from the government.
“We urge the government to provide the industry with clarity, so that we can keep our all-important customers up-to-date and informed.
“We are continuing to operate flights and holidays to our destinations in the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands as scheduled. Because the FCO travel advice to these destinations remains unchanged, our usual terms and conditions apply.
“As always, we advise customers to purchase appropriate travel insurance before travelling.
“This is a fast-moving situation, which we are continuing to monitor very closely.
“We would like to thank our customers for their understanding and patience.”
