TUI cancels more flights to Egypt, Florida and Tunisia in latest travel update

Tui has cancelled more flights and holidays after ongoing uncertainty around international travel.

The holiday giant has been reviewing its flights programme and cancellations in line with government updates and has now confirmed more holidays will be cancelled into October.

Holidays to Florida, Mexico, Egypt and Tunisia are among those affected in the latest update, which include dates up to October 31.

Following the most recent UK government travel announcement, the list of green, amber and red countries – as defined by the government’s traffic light system – will be removed and replaced with a new two-tier system from tomorrow (Monday, October 4).

From Monday, fully vaccinated customers will no longer be required to take a pre-departure test before their arrival into England and later in October the day 2 PCR test will be replaced by a lateral flow test.

This guidance will also apply to children under the age of 18 who are travelling with their vaccinated parents.

Travellers are reminded that destinations will have their own entry requirements which may vary and TUI customers are advised to check the FCDO advice for the country they are travelling to.

But despite the removal of the green, amber and red lists, Tui has still cancelled a number of its holidays through next month due to restrictions on travel.

In a statement, Tui said that they will be contacting the customers of cancelled flights as soon as possible to discuss their options.

They said: “Just so you know, the listed destinations and dates don’t cover all our holiday programme changes. Due to ongoing reviews of our flight schedules, we’ve had to cancel some holidays that aren’t listed.

“If your holiday is cancelled, we will contact you directly via email – so don’t worry if you receive one of these emails from us and your holiday isn’t listed here.”
