TUI have cancelled Madeira flights after Portugal announced they will be restricting passenger travel to and from the UK.
The carrier said: “Following the decision by the Portuguese Foreign Office to close the borders to UK nationals, holidays to Madeira on December 21 and December 24 will not operate. Customers should not go to the airport.
“Impacted customers will be contacted and offered the option to amend with a booking incentive or cancel their booking and receive a full cash refund.”
TUI has also taken action following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s tougher domestic measures.
All Luton Airport flights are now cancelled until December 30. Anyone affected will be contacted and provided with their options.
TUI said in a statement yesterday: “Following the UK Government’s decision to introduce new restrictions for Tier Four in England we will be cancelling our flights departing from Luton airport from December 20-30. We will be in direct contact with these customers to offer them a full refund or the option to amend their booking.
“Any customers that live in Tier Four and are due to depart in the next 14 days will be entitled to cancel and receive a full refund or amend for free to any holiday that’s currently on sale.
“Customers with a holiday that is due to depart in the next 14 days and is no longer able to operate will be contacted by a member of our team and will receive a full refund or the option to amend for free to any holiday that’s currently on sale.
“Customers with a TUI holiday, but not flying on TUI Airways, are able to amend their holiday for free to a holiday with the same airline as their original booking. If the airline cancels the flight, customers will be able to receive a full refund.”
