A spokesperson said: “In view of the ongoing travel restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to recommence our flights and holidays programme on July 1. The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is our absolute priority, and we are continuing to monitor the situation very closely.”
In a dedicated message to the trade, it added: “Our commitment to working in partnership with independent travel agents has never been stronger, and we are contacting agents with a number of options for customers, including rebook options, rebook codes and flexible T&Cs.
“All of these super flexible options are designed to help agents look after their customers, and we are very proud of the feedback we have received so far. We can assure all agents affected by today’s announcement that they will receive the same level of service.
“We have said throughout that the sun will shine again and when it does, we will be there to take customers away on their well-deserved holidays. As well as this, agents can be assured that we will be implementing measures, in consultation with the relevant authorities, to ensure the safety and well-being of everybody onboard. We will announce further details on this in due course.”
