TUI has cancelled all of its holiday packages sold to consumers for travel to mainland Spain effective July 26, until at least August 9. In a press release, the United Kingdom tour operator said the move had been caused by the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office's decision to again advise against all but essential travel to mainland Spain.

The FCO said in its travel advisory for Spain that it had based its decision on its "current assessment of COVID-19 risks" but exempted the Balearic and Canary Islands from the recommendation.

"This advice is based on evidence of increases in cases of COVID-19 in several regions, but particularly in Aragon, Navarra and Catalonia (which include the cities of Zaragoza, Pamplona and Barcelona)," it said.

All passengers returning from mainland Spain and the two island groups will, however, have to self-isolate again on their return to the UK effective immediately.

As a result, TUI Airways (BY, London Luton) has cancelled all of its scheduled services to mainland Spain with flights due to operate from Birmingham Int'l, London Gatwick, and Manchester Int'l to Malaga now cancelled. However, the BBC has reported that TUI said that "all customers currently on holiday" could "continue to enjoy their holiday and will return on their intended flight home."

As of July 26, Ryanair, easyJet, Jet2, British Airways, Vueling Airlines, Iberia, Wizz Air UK, easyJet Europe, and Air Europa have not followed TUI's lead and continue to operate all of their scheduled flights between the two countries.
