Breaking News ! More bad news for holidaymakers as the UK’s largest tour operator, TUI, has extended the suspension of Spanish holidays for UK customers. The tour operator has cancelled all trips to mainland Spain until at least August 17. Its schedules in Spain’s Balearic and Canary Islands are also on hold until August 10. The news comes a week after a 14-day quarantine requirement was imposed by the government for people coming from Spain, the Manchester Evening News reports. The government also advised against all non-essential travel to the country due to parts of Spain experiencing spikes in coronavirus cases. TUI UK and Ireland managing director, Andrew Flintham, said: “The summer holiday period is the most important time of year for travel operators and we are therefore doing everything we can to help customers get their well-deserved holiday. “The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is always our highest priority.
