Jet2 will contact all passengers booked to fly before June 17.

A Jet2 spokesperson said: “We are proactively contacting customers in departure date order to discuss their options, one of which is rebooking their holiday to a later date.

“We know just how important holidays are to our customers, and how much they give customers something to look forward to, particularly during difficult times such as these.

“We recognise that these unprecedented events have had a huge impact on our customers, and we would like to thank them for their loyalty, understanding and patience.

“Although these are difficult times for everyone, the sun will come out again.

“We are keeping this decision under constant review, in line with guidance from governments and the relevant authorities.”
