Flights to Spain from 1 July
Several airlines including EasyJet, Jet2 and Ryanair have announced that they plan to resume flights and holidays soon.
Easyjet will be resuming flights from 22 airports across Europe from 15 June, as well as regional flights across the UK. But there will only be one international flight from the UK – from Gatwick to Nice in France.
Jet2 is planning to resume full services from 1 July, and will fly to several Spanish and Italian destinations, before opening up to Greece and Croatia later in the year.
And Ryanair will be restoring 40% of its flights from 1 July and will resume flights from most of the 80 airports it flies from across Europe.
Two-week quarantine to end for Foreign visitors to Spain – 1 July
The measure has been finalised in a cabinet meeting on Monday.
Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya had previously said the requirement would be lifted in July, without giving a date.
Spain normally attracts 80 million tourists a year, with the sector providing more than 12% of the country’s GDP.
Opening up the holiday and property buyers market again before the summer season is over is seen as crucial to the Spanish economy.
