  • The fifth-biggest airline at Malaga Airport will give a full refund to those affected, as well as a £100 discount on rebooked package holidays

The airline has suspended flights to Malaga until February next year, the British-run company has announced.

The low-cost operator, which is the fifth largest at the Costa del Sol airport in terms of passenger volume, with 964,123 passengers last year, said that "due to the continuing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the latest travel advice from the [UK] Government, we have taken the decision to extend the suspension of flights and holidays to Malaga, Alicante and Faro".

Flights and holidays to Malaga and Alicante would be suspended until 10 February 2021, the statement read.

The airline, which provides package holidays on the Costa del Sol in collaboration with a hundred hotels, initially suspended its operations to Malaga when the UK decreed a 14-day quarantine for travellers arriving from Spain.

The company said that those affected by cancellations would automatically receive a full refund and that customers who wish to rebook would be offered a £100 discount on their next package holiday for departures up to and including 31 March 2021.
