The Canary Islands and other countries are now back on the list of travel corridors not requiring quarantine in the UK.


In addition to Denmark, the Maldives and the Greek island of Mykonos, the popular Spanish vacation destination will be added, said Minister of Transport Grant Shapps.

The Canary Islands will again be included in the government’s list of travel corridors.

Holidaymakers do not have to be quarantined when returning from the Spanish Canary Islands.

Andrew Flintham, Managing Director of Tui UK and Ireland, said: “We have not been able to take Tui holidaymakers to the Canary Islands for 89 days when the sudden quarantine and subsequent travel restrictions were imposed without notice.

This means that those arriving in the UK from these places no longer need to isolate themselves for 14 days after 4am on Sunday.

“We urge the government to continue to work closely with the industry on the airport tests so that we can develop more destinations in the coming weeks. Wherever possible, we need to move away from the concern with which our industry is waiting for the new list of places people can travel to each week.

“We are therefore delighted that flights to the UK will now resume from Saturday 24 October. The first flights will start this weekend to Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, with many more to follow in the coming days.

“This level of uncertainty is detrimental to the economy and to everyone working in our industry.

At the beginning of the summer the list of countries to which British travellers can travel without quarantine was long, but now the list is much shorter.

The travel information changes daily. For more information and the latest restrictions, see Travel Corridors.
