TUI, easyJet, Jet2, British Airways and more update flight policies

Foreign holidays are once again possible for UK travellers.

In England, most legal restrictions on social contact have now been removed, with no limits on how many people can meet up or attend events.

The UK government’s three colour-coded (green, amber, red) traffic light system has also been updated, with several popular holiday spots opening up again for British tourists.

The colour category a country falls into defines the testing, self-isolation or quarantine requirements for when you re-enter the UK after travelling.

Rules for ‘amber-listed’ countries have recently changed, meaning fully-vaccinated Brits no longer need to quarantine for 10 days when arriving from “ amber list ” destinations (apart from France).

However this traffic light system is for re-entry into the UK only – there are likely to also be separate entry requirements set by the country you’re travelling to.

Each airline is also different, with some only flying to certain destinations and operating their own individual coronavirus policies.

We’ve decided to take a look at each airline to answer the key questions UK travellers want to know right now from destinations open for travelling, face mask rules and coronavirus cover.
