JET2 is restarting flights and holidays to amber list destinations from next week.

The tour operator has announced that Brits can head to popular holiday hotspots such as Spain, Portugal and Greece again following the travel announcement last week.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said that from July 19, double vaxxed Brits will be able to return from amber list destinations without having to quarantine, opening up holidays to Spain, Portugal and Greece.

Instead, Brits will just need a pre-arrival Covid test and another on day two, if showing proof of both jabs, as well as a completed Passenger Locator Form.

Jet2's Steve Heapy announced that this means trips can go ahead to countries which are on the amber list from next week.

He said: "We will be restarting flights and holidays to all Amber List destinations from 19th July 2021 onwards and we are ready for the wave of demand that this long-awaited and very welcome news will bring."

This includes most of the European hotspots such as France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy, although un-vaxxed Brits will still have to quarantine when returning to the UK.

Only the Spanish Balearic Islands, Portugal's Madeira and Malta are currently on the green list and open to all Brits.

Holidaymakers will still have to check the restrictions of other countries before travelling, however, as the amber list exemption rules is not reciprocal.

Portugal, Malta and France are only accepting fully vaccinated Brits, while Spain will allow full vaccination or a negative Covid test.
