TUI cancels additional vacations as a result of the FCDO change – which destinations are affected?
Due to changing travel advise, TUI has decided to cancel more vacations. Is it affecting your travel plans?
Due to changing coronavirus travel restrictions, TUI has been forced to cancel and amend vacations on a regular basis over the last year. Due to travel advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the airline has confirmed more cancellations and suspensions to select destinations in its most recent update (FCDO).
All flights and vacations to Jamaica have been canceled, according to a major update.
Following the FCDO’s decision to warn against “all but essential travel to the entire island of Jamaica based on the current assessment of COVID-19 threats,” the news comes as a surprise.
“Holidays to Jamaica, including flight-only and accommodation-only bookings, planned to depart on or before September 11, 2021 [will not be operating],” TUI stated on its website.
The airline has also been pressured to make changes to its holiday itineraries, which include stops in Italy, Aruba, Abu Dhabi, and Egypt.
Aruba vacations, including flight-only and hotel-only arrangements, that were scheduled to travel on or before September 18, 2021, have been canceled.
Holidays to Naples, Italy, including flight-only and accommodation-only reservations, that are scheduled to travel on or before September 6, 2021, have been canceled.
Additionally, vacations to Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Florida, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, and the United States scheduled to depart on or before September 25, 2021, have been canceled.
TUI has also canceled vacations to a number of destinations that were scheduled to travel on or around October 31, 2021.
These include TUI Airways flights to Almeria and Girona in Spain, Calabria in Italy, Bulgaria, Sardinia and Sicily flights, TUI Airways flights to Malta, TUI Airways flights to Kvarner Bay in Croatia, Montenegro, Los Cabos in Mexico, and TUI Airways flights to Thailand.
“Please rest assured, if your holiday has been cancelled, we’ll be contacting you as soon as possible to discuss your options,” TUI says on its website.
The airline’s “Holiday Promise” is still in effect.
This means that vacations will be canceled if the FCDO advises against non-essential travel overseas or if a destination’s government decides to impose quarantine that cannot be prevented by testing or vaccination.
The “Holiday Promise” also applies to countries whose borders are near to those of the United Kingdom, or if a destination is placed on the “red list.”
