As a company, we cannot believe that in a matter of weeks we have gone from taking our customers on holiday all around the world to repatriating over 45,000 people back to the UK. As a business, we love sending our customers on holiday to make amazing memories with friends, family and loved ones, and we’re all adjusting to the fact that that isn’t possible at the moment.
The health, safety and security of our customers is always our number one priority, and we therefore won’t take them on holiday again until it is appropriate to do so. We have made the difficult decision to cancel all TUI and First Choice holidays up to and including the 14 May 2020, Marella Cruises sailings up to and including 31 May 2020 and TUI River Cruises will have its first sailing on 26 November 2020. We will continuously review all holidays due to travel after these dates.
In the last three weeks, over 100,000 customers have contacted us on social media alone. We’ve set up a new virtual contact centre, and our colleagues are adapting to working from home. We’re still overwhelmed with the volume of customers contacting us, and we promise we’re doing our best to help everyone.
Please be reassured our primary concern is the safety of our customers and colleagues and we are doing everything we can to ensure your travel safety.
Proactive measures are in place and these include: enhanced monitoring of flights from affected locations and early liaison with airlines; additional awareness signage in the terminal; the provision of hand sanitiser dispenser locations across the airport and enhanced cleaning procedures.
We continue to work closely and follow the guidance received from the relevant agencies including Public Health England, and the Government to ensure that we provide the latest and most accurate information on the evolving situation.
Thank you for your ongoing support and whether you are travelling now or in the future our team is here to assist you and we look forward to welcoming you on your future travels.
With increasing news coverage around the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve been working with our partner NCP to provide you with information around refunds and cancellations terms for existing pre booked parking.
From 13th March 2020, the following terms apply to existing bookings regardless of whether your travel has been cancelled by your airline or tour operator or as a result of you wishing to change your travel plans.
As the NCP contact centre is experiencing a high volume of calls, please avoid calling or emailing unless you are due to travel in the next 72 hours. We recommend that you follow the advice below as the NCP team are having to prioritise customers whose immediate travel plans are now impacted.

Non flexible product booking
Please avoid calling or emailing to follow up on your code. The NCP team is dealing with every customer enquiry as quickly as possible but are experiencing unprecedented levels of contact at the moment which is impacting our response time. They will get back to all customers in due course and ask you to bear with and thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Scotland’s airline Loganair today announced a further drop in the number of flights due to the increasing impact of the coronavirus.
With forward bookings continuing to fall dramatically versus their previous levels, the airline has enacted an overall reduction of over half of its flying programme for April and May. Full details of how to manage your booking are available on its website at www.loganair.co.uk.
From the end of next week, we will be implementing an emergency timetable, which will reduce our operations from around 214 to 95 scheduled flights each weekday – a cut of 55%. We expect this to be a temporary reduction and we are implementing this until the end of May but may have to extend that timescale as the situation continues to develop.
Customers booked on flights up to the end of May can change their reservation without a change fee to travel on a future date. However, if future flights are more expensive, the difference in fare will be payable. Where services are completely suspended a full refund will be applicable.
Customers are strongly being advised to manage their bookings through our website as we are experiencing exceptionally high call volumes into our call centre.
The unprecedented impact of Covid-19 on global travel has inevitably resulted in an extreme number of enquiries to our contact centre. Loganair has always maintained the importance of having an in-house, UK-based call centre, thus our experienced but smaller team are working exceptionally hard to support our customers.
To help us help you, before calling please consider whether:
– Your enquiry is urgent – you’re travelling in the next 7 days
– You have reason to believe you have an affected booking
– You have checked your emails to see if we’ve already contacted you regarding your booking and presented options
If Loganair has not contacted you via email, your flight is currently scheduled as planned.
