Alicante-Elche not affected as TUI cancels more October holidays

TUI has cancelled more flights to destinations including Egypt, Florida and parts of Italy and Spain, due to ongoing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Holidaymakers were relieved in the change to travel rules and removal of the traffic light system from October 4 but TUI has reviewed its programme and taken the decision to cancel trips with some cancelled up to and including October 16, others up to and including October 21 and up to October 31.

TUI welcomed the news that fully vaccinated passengers will no longer have to take pre-departure tests before travelling to the UK from countries not on the red list and apologised for any disruption caused by cancelled holidays.

“We’d like to thank our customers for their patience during this time,” said a spokesperson from TUI. “We are continually reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with Government updates every three weeks,” they added.

Destinations including Spain, Italy, Cuba, Mexico, Austria, Florida (USA) and Thailand are among those cancelled this month.

TUI says that flights and trips to the following Spain destinations are NOT cancelled – including Alicante-Elche, Balearics (Ibiza, Majorca, Menorca). Canaries (Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma and Tenerife).

Many other flights cancelled include destinations in Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Turkey
