Jet2 issues Portugal holiday warning

Jet2 has warned Brits heading on Portugal holidays that they may face longer queues due to ongoing strike action at the country’s airports. The holiday giant has issued a statement ahead of the bank holiday weekend – and half term – as industrial action is set to impact main airports in Portugal including Madeira Airport International Cristiano Ronaldo, Faro International Airport and Humberto Delgado Airport.

Hottest Weekend Expected

The hottest weather of 2023 is expected to arrive within hours and will be followed by a warm Bank Holiday weekend. The temperatures could hit 24 degree Celsius on Wednesday afternoon in south east Wales and the West Midlands, which would be the highest recorded this year so far, the Met Office said. This will include “almost unbreakable sunshine”.

Worst Traffic Jam Ever

The motorists are being told to expect “hectic” traffic during what is expected to be the busiest late May bank holiday weekend on the roads since 2019. A survey of 2,138 drivers for the RAC indicated that 19.2 million leisure car trips will take place across the UK between Friday and Monday. The worst traffic over the four days is expected on Friday, when people embarking on bank holiday getaways will compete for road space with commuters.
