Jet2 to stop flying until May.

The UK holiday airline and package firm Jet2 has confirmed it will halt flights and holiday until May.  The firms CEO Steve Heapy announced the cessation early this week as the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic continues to expand and cause major travel disruption around the world.

The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is advising against all non-essential worldwide travel for a period of 30 days. Heapy said the firm would stop until "the end of April, and we plan to recommence from May 1st 2020, a decision we will keep under constant review."

"Whilst the health and safety of our customers is, of course, our number one priority, we are also acutely aware of our responsibility as an award-winning airline and tour operator to look after our customers.

With that responsibility in mind, we know that flying customers back to the UK is the right thing to do. As such, we are continuing to operate our scheduled programme, with aircraft flying empty from the UK so that we can fill them and bring customers home. In addition to that programme of scheduled flights, we are putting on extra aircraft to bring customers home, some of who may not have been offered flights home by their airline."
