Wildfires continue to create problems in Greece and Rhodes in particular.

Jet2 have issued an update for their customers.

A spokesperson said: “By the end of Wednesday 26 July Jet2.com will have operated 20 flights to the UK from Rhodes so far this week – a combination of repatriation flights and scheduled flights – which have continued to meet the demand we have seen.

“We continue to fly aircraft to Rhodes with no customers onboard, so that we can bring our customers back to the UK on their scheduled flights, as well as any additional Jet2customers who wish to return to the UK.

“Our hugely expanded team of colleagues in Rhodes, highly visible in their red uniforms, continue to be present throughout resorts and at Rhodes Airport to look after our customers. We know that many customers have been through a difficult time, however we have continued to work hard to look after everyone, and we are extremely grateful to our teams for their hard work.

“All flights and holidays to Rhodes remain cancelled up to and including Sunday 30 July. We have already contacted affected customers with regards to their refund and rebooking options.

“It is very clear how much people want to go on their well-deserved holidays, as the number of people rebooking holidays for this summer is hugely encouraging. We thank every single customer for their patience, understanding and loyalty.”

And the airline has issued this further guidance for those wishing to travel next week:
