British operator Jet2 has decided cancel “immediately” All the reservations she made in Spain for the next few weeks which included among her clients: A minor between 12 and 15 years old. It also offers the option to cancel their leave for parents traveling with teens aged 16-17, due to the need to present a Covid passport when entering the country. This Tuesday, the United Kingdom lifted all restrictions on travel to the country.
In an internal communication that El Español was able to reach, the company points out to its partners The government of Spain will not allow British minors aged 12-17 to enter the country without a full Covid certificate, as requested by business entities such as hoteliers in Benidorm.
the employer has discovered that this requirement applies to all UK nationals, It has been a burden on family tourism, Because even though many minors have already received one dose of the vaccine, the deadline for getting a second dose has not yet passed. Therefore, they do not have full guidance, and they cannot travel to Spain.
In this sense, Jet2 Holidays has contacted the Government of Spain to request a moratorium on minors. And this afternoon they sent a statement to their suppliers informing them that the Executive السلطة You have no intention of changing your requirements, which will continue to veto. The response was to cancel most of the parcels sold.
The letter explains that the British authorities have “accelerated” the vaccination of minors, but that many of them will not be able to vaccinate the second dose. Until the “second half of winter”. They will not be able to travel to Spain until then.
Jet2 urges its partners to contact the Department of Health and “press” for a “more appropriate response to the current situation”, given the rate of vaccination in the UK. He adds that, in his opinion, “take a test 48 hours before travel.” It involves less risk than entering with the dual guideline but without any testing”, because it was referred in vain to the Spanish authorities.
The statement concludes by thanking the assistants for their “patience” and calling them for the latest developments in the future on the status of the reserves.
This is new It hits difficult areas where British tourism, especially the family, is an off-season mainstay. In the case of the Costa Blanca, Benidorm’s employers’ association, Hospek, warned this Tuesday that the expected occupancy figures were “the worst since the end of confinement”, due to international restrictions and due to delays in the marketing of Emserso flights.
