Jet2 flights and holidays have been repeatedly cancelled due to Government travel restrictions during the Covid crisis. Luckily, after the Government’s roadmap was announced, the end of travel misery was signposted. Jet2 went on to announce that its flights and holidays would resume from May 17 – the earliest date at which international travel can resume. These are the latest Jet2 updates.
