An easyJet holidays spokesperson said: “We heard the news from the government on Malta, France and the Netherlands being added to the travel quarantine list and the FCO advice changing to all but essential travel for these countries at the same time as everyone else. Despite another late night announcement, we were able to contact our affected customers very soon afterwards to let them know we have cancelled their holiday and will be processing full refunds as quickly as possible. Our holidays to these destinations are currently cancelled up to the end of August.
“For anyone with bookings beyond this date we’ll keep this under review but customers with holidays booked to these destinations in September can also choose to cancel their holiday and receive credit on their online easyJet holidays account for a future holiday with us without incurring any fees.
“We really feel for our customers who were looking forward to a well-deserved holiday.”
However, despite package holidays being cancelled, flights to France will continue.
An easyJet spokesperson told Express.co.uk that they will operate a full schedule in the coming days.
