TUI STATEMENT – 18.03.20
Due to the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19, the Foreign Commonwealth Office have advised against all but essential travel. We will therefore no longer be offering TUI Airways flights and holidays departing between 17 March and 16 April 2020.
We will proactively contact all customers due to travel up to and including 16 April 2020 to offer a range of flexible options, including moving their holiday to a later date.
All customers overseas are being looked after by our resort and customer service teams, with customers in many of our destinations able to return home on their original scheduled return flight.
Due to local restrictions, customers in Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritius and Spain will return home early and will be proactively contacted with details of their new airport transfer and flight times.
The health and safety of our customers and crew remains of primary importance and we look forward to taking people on holiday again.
Please be reassured our primary concern is the safety of our customers and colleagues and we are doing everything we can to ensure your travel safety.
Proactive measures are in place and these include: enhanced monitoring of flights from affected locations and early liaison with airlines; additional awareness signage in the terminal; the provision of hand sanitiser dispenser locations across the airport and enhanced cleaning procedures.
We continue to work closely and follow the guidance received from the relevant agencies including Public Health England, and the Government to ensure that we provide the latest and most accurate information on the evolving situation.
Thank you for your ongoing support and whether you are travelling now or in the future our team is here to assist you and we look forward to welcoming you on your future travels.
Bournemouth Airport is running a public consultation on the proposed implementation of new satellite-based Instrument Approach Procedures, which form part of an initiative to modernise the airspace around the airport.
Regional & City Airports, which owns and operates Bournemouth Airport, stresses that the proposals would not result in changes of aircraft flows or an increase in agreed movements, nor would they result in aircraft arriving at lower altitudes or in any changes to visual training flights.
The public consultation is open until 27th March 2020 and is a regulatory requirement of the Civil Aviation Authority. The public is invited to comment online at the CAA Airspace Change Portal: https://lnkd.in/gizFuVp.
There is also a drop-in session at the airport on Friday 21st February, 3pm to 10pm, to provide more information about the proposed changes and answer any questions.
Travellers can continue to book and travel with confidence.
