JET2 is resuming flights and holidays to Cyprus from August 17.
The tour operator was forced to cancel routes to the island last month due to the current coronavirus restrictions required for Brits on arrival.
Anyone entering Cyprus from the UK must have a negative coronavirus test within the last 72 hours, due to the UK being deemed a "category B" country.
Jet2 initially claimed they would only allow holidays to resume if the UK became a "category A" country, which has no entry restrictions.
However, due to increased demand, they are resuming from next week, with routes and holiday packages to Larnaca and Paphos.
Larnaca flights and holidays will resume from August 17, with routes from Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, London Stansted, Manchester and Newcastle.
Paphos will follow suit on August 18, from the same airports.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said they were restarting due to the "clear demand" from Brit.
He explained: "We are delighted to be recommencing our flights and holidays programme to Cyprus from 17th August and looking at the demand it’s very clear just how much our customers are looking forward to their well-deserved holidays in the Cypriot sunshine.
"These have been incredibly uncertain and difficult times for everyone, and we have been busy looking after our customers and doing the right thing for them.
Savvas Perdios, Deputy Minister of Tourism Cyprus added: "Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is one of our most loyal and trusted partners and we are more than eager to once again, welcome its customers to Cyprus.
"We would like to wish Jet2.com and Jet2holidays every success and extend a warm welcome to all its customers.”
To enter the country, Brits will need to get a Covid-negative test results, although the NHS does not offer free coronavirus tests for travel reasons.
Private tests can cost up to £200 per passenger.
All travellers to Cyprus must also complete a Cyprus Flight Pass before travelling which has your test result uploaded within 24 hours of your departure.
Families were left fuming when their Jet2 holidays to Cyprus were cancelled just hours after they paid hundreds for coronavirus tests.
