All Jet2 flights to mainland Spain and the Canary Islands have been cancelled with immediate effect, the British low-cost airline has announced. It operates flights from nine UK airports.

On Friday Spain declared a national emergency, closings bars, shops and restaurants.

“We are contacting our customers who are currently in these destinations, and who are due to travel, to advise them of their options, so we urge customers not to call us,” the company said in a statement.

Flight tracking website Flight Radar 24 shows seven planes turning around mid-air to return to Britain.
