If they are, I would suggest that it's down to lack of knowledge of the actual situation outside of the UK. Why does that surprise me?

Fact is new cases are down into three figures daily on Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal. Slovenia has declared an end to it's epidemic, and most countries in central Europe are starting to open up to inbound tourism over the next couple of weeks. If I were to be fearful of anything it might be staying in the UK!

Biggest issue is probably the risk involved in being couped up in an aluminium tube for 3 or 4 hours.

I know the exact sequence of events and dates because I was caught up in it early on. It was clear by w/c 24/01 this was a major threat and other countries were taking action. The elephant in the room is what our Government and the media were completely pre-occupied with w/c 24/01, culminating in the evening of 31/01
and morning of 01/02. And where they were, the Prime Minister in particular, in the three critical weeks after that. The medical profession very much saw this coming and (hopefully) all will come out in a proper Public Inquiry. Hindsight sadly didn’t need to be required.
I don't know quite why you are so keen to shoot the messenger as I simply reported what I had heard in an interview on the Radio 4 Today programme of 16th May. James Galloway of a Kings College research team was speaking about a meeting with colleagues "in early February" (not well into February as I misremembered) and you can listen again to what he said 42 minutes into the programme. I cannot see how you interpreted my post as being in any way in support of "our Prime Minister" - my opinions on that score might actually surprise you.

Mods...Please might I respectfully ask that all these above `Experts` `Hindsight not required merchants` and those with a complete blueprint for how to deal with the virus` have their posts moved to the more appropriate Jet Blast. That would serve to allow the rest of us to report on Jet2.
Speaking of which, they are being very flexible at the moment so if you have any sort of booking and want to change, I`m told to try the Sales teams who are manning the phones (might be a delay connecting though) and they will try to help assist and change where they can.

Just to get back onto Jet2 track.
My friend was due to visit from Malaga to Manchester. His northbound flight was in the cancelled time period his southbound return was not. Yesterday he got his full refund. Today he booked his June 2021 flights. Well done Jet2.

Spain announced a short while ago that it will open its borders to tourists with effect from 1st July...... good news for Jet2 and other tour operators.

Just google Spanish holidays. Plenty of stories reporting that they will be open with no quarantine from 1st July. Hopefully a move in the right direction.

Foreign visitors to Spain will no longer have to undergo a two-week quarantine from 1 July, the government has announced.

It said the measure had been finalised in a cabinet meeting on Monday.

Don't rush

Update from Spanish PM.......
The PM Pedro Sánchez has mentioned the end of June or beginning of July to regain freedom of movement throughout the country and urged the regional presidents to promote national tourism as the one that “pushes and pulls the car” this summer season. The Canary Islands President described this as good news for the Canary Islands but stressed the need for passengers to arrive with negative PCR tests for the COVID-19 virus and always strictly complying with international protocols on health security for tourism, processes that must be approved and applied before the restart of this activity. Torres also added it will be necessary to add a system that allows controlling the traceability of visitors and said, “only then will it be time to open hotels..

It will be interesting to see what happens when domestic travel is fully unlocked and residents can travel from areas which have had major outbreaks to those which haven't

Good question especially as Greece not 'open' yet and even when it is we are, quite rightly, not wanted.

This the British aren’t wanted is platitudinous drivel without evidence.

Almost all the European tourist centres can‘t wait for the Brits to return and in numbers !

The current resistance is rather more routed in decisions made in and around Whitehall !
