Jet2 has issued a ‘do not travel’ warning to holidaymakers heading to a Greek island, citing ‘weather disruption’.

The airline has put a halt on flights to Skiathos until Saturday, May 11, and is advising customers not to head to the airport today, Friday, May 10. Customers have been advised to avoid travelling to the airport and, for those already there, to return home if possible and only come back three hours before their rescheduled departure time.

Skiathos, nestled off the east coast of mainland Greece in the Aegean Sea, is currently experiencing heavy rain, as per the UK Met Office’s latest weather forecast, although conditions are expected to improve by tomorrow. Jet2 is keeping a close eye on the situation and has extended its apologies for any inconvenience this may cause to passengers, reports the Manchester Evening News.

On Jet2’s website, it states that flights to the island of Skiathos depart across several UK airports. These include Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, London Stansted, Leeds Bradford and Newcastle.

A Jet2 spokesperson said: “If you are travelling to Skiathos today [May 10], please do not travel to the airport. If you have already travelled to the airport, if possible, we would advise you to return home and come back to the airport 3 hours before your new departure time tomorrow.

“If it is not possible to make your way home, please speak to a member of our friendly Red team at the airport who will be happy to help. We apologise for this change that is unfortunately beyond our control, if you are due to travel to Skiathos today, we have sent all details of the change and your options to your email address on the booking.

“You can also use the search function above, by entering the route you are due to fly on or the flight number, here you will find up to date information regarding your flight.
