TUI cancelled more flights due to the ongoing volcano eruption on La Palma. The airline confirmed all vacations and flights have been declined this month to the island.
Two months ago, the volcano started erupting which is now continuously flowing through the Spanish Island. This week, at the first it hit tourist beach Los Guirres, often used by surfers hoping this will help to stop the activity which has been ongoing since 19th Sep.
TUI exclusively stated that due to the ongoing atmosphere unfortunately they have to cancel all flights to La Palma departing up to and including 1st Dec. 2021. On 2nd Dec. 2021, the next flight is scheduled to La Palma. Adding more to it, they assured customers to monitor the situation and contact them for impacting their holiday.
Any customers who are affected will be contacted for a refund or compensation. Most of TUI’s holidays have now resumed, earlier many were canceled this year due to the confusing traffic light system. Passengers were warned by the tour operator to check their NHS COVID passes.
The NHS COVID pass will be accepted as proof of vaccination status confirmed by the European Union. Brits need to update their apps to add this new rule. If anyone prints their vaccination status before 1st Nov. will not be able to use it. The FCDO advised customers traveling to a number of places need to ensure that any printed proof of their vaccination status needs to be dated from 1st Nov.
