Dozens of holidays have been cancelled by TUI as the travel company put some routes on hold until the middle of July.
With little certainty around foreign travel and the vast majority of hotspots currently on the amber travel list, TUI has decided to pause flights to a number of destinations.
The travel provider shared the news in an update to customers on its official website, in which it announced that trips to Zante have been cancelled up to and including June 28 this year.
Other destinations have been further delayed including mainland Spain, Cyprus, Mallorca, Crete, Mykonos and Ibiza.
Holidays to these locations, and more, are now not scheduled to resume until next month.

- Spain – Mainland Spain, Formentera, Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca, La Palma

Holidays to the majority of these destinations had previously only been cancelled until around mid June.
The travel provider went on to announce that all holidays to the following destinations are cancelled up to and including July 11:
- Cape Verde
- Costa Rica
- Dominican Republic
Trips to these destinations had previously been cancelled by the travel provider until late June.
A company spokesperson said: “We want to offer our customers flexibility and choice this summer, so where borders are open and FCDO advice allows travel, we will operate to those destinations as planned.
“We are constantly reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the government updates every three weeks, with the next update expected on 24 June.

TUI has said that customers affected by its cancellations will be contacted directly and have a number of options available to them.
This includes being able to request a full cash refund on their booking.
