Unfortunately, as bmi baby found out a few years ago with the possible exception of Belfast most of Flybe’s routes aren’t really viable in a 737...

Madeira now also suspended:

LGS6753 14th Mar 2020 19:27

More importantly, that notice says no flights from 21st March to 24th April - almost 5 weeks as a minimum with no revenue at all.
And who thinks things will return to normal on 25th April?

Considering the peak in the UK isnt due for 14 weeks then I highly doubt it. Obviosuly yet to be confirmed, but hearing whispers MAN T2 maybe closed for a "period", thats the extent of the effects of all this !

er... I think the ‘no flights’ reference applies only to Madeira at the moment looking at the notice a couple of posts up.
Having said that, I wouldn’t be surprised it what you’ve said turns out to be the case eventually

What's left for S20?
 
Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria as far as I can see and who knows how long that will be the case.
Not a lot to sustain a Business, is it?

Who knows whats around the corner with this. However the majority of these routes are closed until end of March, (bread and butter anyway) with other countries and routes starting soon after. A very slow build up to the peak of summer. Those three destinations are served from May in their main and build into a very busy season in July/August.

Yes, we fly BHX-BJV in mid May. In my minds eye I'm thinking the longer these countries keep borders open before any 14 day (or longer like Madeira) Isolation, the more likely May/june flights will be in jeopardy.

Keep Positive! This could quite easily all be over by the end of March/Mid April. The world cannot afford for it to continue for a year. Cause once it's over no one will have money to do anything. Governments cannot afford that - they need people earning money and paying tax.

Thats what we keep saying too.
If Jet2 have to cancel, there's always Scarborough!

The world can easily afford it. The world doesn't require any of us to survive.

What I'm hearing is that we will require a complete lockdown for at least 13 weeks, probably a few weeks longer.

Flying Hi 15th Mar 2020 13:16

Theres The dilemma.
is the 'LOCKDOWN' a legal thing?
strikes me that be 'asked' to self isolate isnt NOT grounds for cancelling or can I use it to cancel using Jet2s Insurance and get my money back?
We're over 70. If we turn up at BHX in May12, will we be refused travel?
Sone straight answers from the Gov or anyone in The Know would be good.

Look by May,there will be no flights and you will be required to self isolate,this is the biggest crisis since WW2
Safeguarding yourselves is the number 1,forget everything else,losing money is the least of the worries,I 've forfeited My holiday to Spain in May.
The airline industry is compromised for this year at least!

Surely you should have your own insurance to claim upon. It’s not the fault of Jet2 if other countries close up shop or our government dictate that everyone must remain isolated for a period of time. Their insurance isn’t there to cover your lack of preparedness.
Given that your age puts you in one of the highest risk groups for this virus, I’d be worrying about getting to May 12th in the first place. Hopefully by then things may be returning to some sense of normality and holidays will be going ahead as booked.

Just to be clear - our Insurance IS the Jet2 insurance bought at time of booking.
Is 'must' therefore a Government edict and so insurance applies or just Gov BS like Herd immunity
Feeling out on a limb.

I see, just for the sake of clarification, your insurance was purchased through Jet2, but is certainly not provided by them. If you check your insurance documents you’ll see who is actually providing the cover. You would need to check your insurance documentation to see whether there is cover for cancellation due to FCO advice.

Budapest, Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble, Paris and Nice are also now all suspended.

Peak virus according to the scientists is 10 to 14 weeks away which takes us to the end of May or mid to late June as a worse case.
Realistically I would think the aviation industry is on a go-slow until then.
The situation is changing daily and for all staff whether airlines, airports or workers in industries that support them, it will be a deeply worrying time.
Clearly it is also a very confusing time for customers of these airlines as well. The situation is fluid and I feel sure airlines like Jet2 will update their customers as soon as they can and assuming they have a clear picture.

Sone straight answers from the Gov or anyone in The Know would be good.
If things continue as they are and either your destination won’t accept incoming visitors, or is imposing severe restrictions the Jet2 have shown that they have been decisive, even to the extent yesterday of taking the lead and returning plane loads of passengers who were well on their way to their Spanish destinations and turning them round. Jet2 won’t take you, you won’t need to worry about the insurance, Jet2 will offer various alternatives, from a refund to changing dates, to possibly offering you an alternative destination if any exist.
