FLIGHTS between Glasgow and the Canary Islands have been grounded for a month...due to the Covid-19 lockdown in England. 

EasyJet bosses have confirmed all scheduled services to Tenerife and Gran Canaria from the city will be paused until December 4 to coincide with the end of new restrictions down south. 

Flights will remain between the UK nations with the airline working to offer all travellers abroad "clear options" of how they can return home.

An EasyJet spokeswoman said: “Following the Government’s announcement on Saturday, which essentially prevents air travel in the UK, we will not be able operate the majority of our UK touching schedule during the lockdown period.

"We will be operating our planned schedule as normal through until the end of 5 November; on 6, 7 and 8 November will be operating flights with the aim of repatriating customers who need to return to the UK. Following that, we will operate a reduced schedule in order to maintain connectivity between key cities in the UK alongside a small number of international routes.

"This will include maintaining domestic services connecting London, Scotland, Belfast, Birmingham and the Northwest.  We plan to resume our planned flying schedule in early December.

“We are contacting all customers due to travel over the next month to ensure they have clear options and that customers who need to return to the UK can do so. All customers can change their flights to a later date and where flights are cancelled customers are also entitled to a voucher or a refund.  

"Given the steps the Government has taken, our call for sector specific support has never been more urgent.

"The government has recognised the need to directly support the hospitality sector, where decisions have directly affected its ability to trade. The same principle needs to be applied to aviation where no sector specific support has been provided.

"A government financial support package for UK aviation companies must be provided now and we continue to encourage the Government to implement an effective testing regime as soon as possible as this is going to be crucial to get people flying again when it is possible to do so.”
