TUI has updated its latest flight cancellations ahead of the October half-term.

The tour operator has been forced to suspend a number of holidays in recent weeks due to natural disasters and travel bans.

Their latest update has cancelled more holidays to La Palma due to the volcano, which has continued to cause chaos since it first erupted on September 19.

Their update this morning states: "Due to the ongoing situation we’ve unfortunately had to cancel all flights to La Palma departing up to and including 17 November 2021. All impacted customers will be contacted directly to discuss their options.

"The next scheduled flight to La Palma is 18 November 2021."

The airline was also forced to cancel flights to Morroco this week due to the last-minute travel ban on all UK arrivals.
