Budget airline Ryanair says it will continue running UK flights in and out of Spain as normal - despite a 14-day quarantine on travellers arriving in the UK from the country, APA reports citing BBC.

"The schedules remain in place," Neil Sorahan, Ryanair's chief financial officer, told the BBC.

Over the weekend, the UK's biggest tour operator, Tui, cancelled all mainland Spanish holidays until 9 August. But it said all those going to the Balearic and Canary Islands could still travel as planned from Monday.

British Airways is still operating flights, but said the move was "throwing thousands of Britons' travel plans into chaos".

EasyJet is also maintaining a full schedule, as is Jet2

Speaking on the BBC's Today programme this morning, Ryanair's Mr Sorahan said: "As things stand, the market remains open, the schedules remain in place and we continue to operate in and out of Spain as normal."

He added, however, that Ryanair was keeping its entire operation "under consideration" as it builds back its route network post-lockdown.
