Jet2 reopens flights for Freedom Day – flying to over 40 quarantine-free destinations from today

JET2 has launched flights to more than 40 destinations today as Freedom Day opens up the UK.

From today, Brits returning from amber list destinations will no longer have to quarantine, if they are fully vaccinated.

The new rules require Brits to have had both jabs, with the second one at least 14 days before travelling, to be able to skip the 10-day quarantine.

Instead, returning travellers will be able to follow the rules of the green list which requires a negative Covid test pre-arrival and another one on day two, which must be pre-booked.

Destinations include Spain, as well as the Canaries and Balearic Islands, along with Greek islands Corfu, Zante and Crete, have now been launched by Jet2.

Mainland Porgugal along with the island of Madeira are also now on the list for Jet2 passengers.

Excluding the island of Madeira, all of Spain, Greece and Portugal are currently on the amber list.

Travellers will be able to prove their vaccine status on their NHS app, while kids, who have not yet been offered the vaccine, will also be exempt from isolation.

However, Jet2 are also adding flights and holidays to  Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia, after the country was added to the UK’s green list this week.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Today marks a big step up for our award-winning operation, as we are now operating flights and holidays to over 40 quarantine-free destinations.

“We look forward to welcoming more customers back onboard this summer and giving them the holiday they deserve.”

There are fears, however, that more countries could face new restrictions and be placed onto what has been dubbed the “amber plus” list.

France was the first country to be exempt from the new rules, despite being on the amber list, due to the threat of the new Beta variant.

Experts have also warned that Spain and Greece could be next to join France, due to rising cases.

Bulgaria has also banned Brits just days after the country was added to the UK’s green list – here are all the countries in Europe currently not letting British tourists in.
