The UK's largest tour operator, Tui, has said it is extending its suspension of holidays to the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands until 4 August, APA reports citing BBC.

The decision comes after the Foreign Office warned against all but essential travel to Spain and its islands, amid rising coronavirus cases and the reintroduction of a 14-day quarantine requirement on return to the UK.

Tui had previously cancelled trips to the Spanish islands up to and including Friday, while holidays to mainland Spain remain cancelled until 10 August.

The tour operator is increasing its flights to Greece and Turkey this weekend, to enable more customers to switch destinations.
