Breaking News ! Jet2, Ryanair, easyJet and TUI have updated their booking and cancellation rules for summer flights. People will be able to go on holidays "within limits" this summer, a leading expert has claimed, while ministers said the travel green list will be coming soon. However, Peter Openshaw, Professor of Experimental Medicine at Imperial College London, said it was vital people do not drop their guard because there are likely to be further outbreaks of coronavirus. Prof Openshaw told the Andrew Marr Show on Sunday the UK needed to be cautious and prepare. When asked if people will be able to start going on holiday, he said: "Yes, within limits. "It's so important that we do not drop our guard completely. "We know it's perfectly likely there will be further outbreaks unless we use this time to be very cautious and prepare sensibly." His comments come as Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the list of nations where international travel will be permitted is "coming shortly".

So, it's coming shortly." The ban on foreign holidays is expected to be lifted for people in England from May 17 as part of the next easing of coronavirus restrictions. The traffic light system will be risk-based, with different rules for people returning to England depending on which list their destination is on. Travel firms such as TUI, easyJet, British Airways and Jet2 are gearing up for the summer restart, although they have varying plans in terms of destinations and start dates. The Mirror has taken a look at their latest holiday updates.
