You can be in Gran Canaria in the time it takes to get to Schiphol and through security (on a bad day)
Translated by Thomas Ansell
Last month the Dutch tour operator and airline TUI decided to cancel flights to several destinations in Spain due to rising Coronavirus figures. Now, and following a brief but strong spike in cases in the North, people will again be able to take off in Drenthe and land in Gran Canaria from August 16.
As reported by the GIC, the decision to re-start flights follows the Dutch government’s decision to introduce a new travel category ‘yellow’; and to put all EU countries onto the green and yellow travel lists. The orange list will now be used to classify countries that have recently seen a new Coronavirus variant appear.
Aside from TUI stopping its flights to Gran Canaria, the German airline Green Airlines also stopped its flights to Mallorca, Ibiza, Corfu; and Faro (Portugal). It is not yet known when, or if, these flights will re-start again.
