An easyJet spokesman said: “Following today’s announcement from the Greek authorities, we will review our flight schedule and all customers whose flights need to be canceled as a result of any restrictions will be informed and informed of their options which include a transfer. debit card, a voucher for the value of their booking or a refund. “

TUI announced that they would resume holidays in eight destinations on 11 July following the coronavirus blockade.

The British had to fly to Corfu, Crete, Kos and Rhodes from the three major British airports of TUI, Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham.

But a TUI spokesman said: “According to updated Greek government advice, our scheduled flights to Greece between 11 and 14 July will not go ahead.

When we announced our plans to start the summer holidays again, we always said they were subject to government guidelines. We will continue to monitor them and update our festive schedule if necessary. “
