CI Travel Group has taken the decision to cancel part of their FlyDirect flight and holiday programme to the Canary Islands, due to the continuing impact of the COVID pandemic.
Weekly flights were due to operate to Tenerife from February 7th until mid-April. However, all flights operating up to and including 14th March have now been cancelled. The remainder of the programme, from 21st March until 11th April, remains in place.
Robert Mackenzie, Managing Director of CI Travel Group, commented: “It is deeply regrettable that we have had to take the decision to cancel part of our flight programme to Tenerife. However, with the current high levels of COVID and travel restrictions both in the Canary Islands and Jersey, it is simply not possible to operate the programme as we had planned”.
“We had hoped that the situation in the Canary Islands might have improved, but it is clear that, along with so many other parts of the world, the pandemic continues to affect Tenerife. We delayed making the decision for as long as possible but felt now was the right time to provide certainty to our clients. We hope to continue to operate the later flights from 21st March onwards including over the Easter holidays, but will keep this under review in the coming weeks”.
Clients already booked to travel on the cancelled flights, will be contacted in order of departure date with the option of transferring to one of the later dates for Tenerife or to the summer direct flight destination of Majorca, which will go ahead as planned. Alternatively, clients can choose to receive a full refund of all monies paid.
