Airlines have been busy in a single day engaged on plans to cancel nearly all of leisure flights in response to England’s impending nationwide lockdown.
Beneath new guidelines announced by the Government on Saturday, non-essential journey – each home and worldwide – is banned from Thursday November 5 till at the very least December 2.
That takes all abroad holidays off the desk throughout this era, in addition to staycations, on condition that in a single day stays away from residence aren’t permitted.
Paul Charles, CEO of journey consultancy the PC Company, tells Telegraph Journey: “Airline planning groups are already engaged on cancelling outbound flights after November 5, and it will likely be tough to plan for December based mostly on a scarcity of visibility as to what is going to occur nearer to Christmas.
“Within the short-term, airways can be combining scheduled flights returning to the UK, in order that they steadiness not losing cash flying empty legs with the necessity to convey again passengers as a result of return within the coming month. They can’t be left stranded abroad.”
EasyJet was one of many first airways to answer the information, stating: “It’s doubtless that a lot of the UK touching schedule [flights to, from and within the UK] can be cancelled throughout lockdown with our deliberate flying set to renew in early December.”
