Low-cost leisure airline Jet2 has confirmed it will recommence flights from July 15.

The budget flight operator, which is one of the largest in the UK, had grounded its entire fleet following the outbreak of coronavirus.

Officials have now decided to resume flights and holiday programmes from next month – despite the current quarantine measures in place for UK arrivals.

Jet2 also says it is making arrangements to get in touch with ticket-holders to “discuss their options.”

The airline’s statement reads: “Customers who were due to travel before July 15th do not need to contact us. We are continuing to proactively contact customers to discuss their options, one of which is rebooking their holiday to a later date.

“We are working closely with all relevant authorities to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone enjoying our flights and holidays, and we will be introducing a range of safety measures on our aircraft and transfer vehicles.

“We are also working closely with airport, hotel and tourist board partners to ensure that appropriate health and safety measures are implemented. Further details will be announced in due course.”

Jet2 is known for providing budget travel options for Brits; running flights from a number of UK airports to various destinations across Europe – including France, Germany, Greece, Italy and Spain.
