BREAKING: Spain’s Canary Islands added to UK travel corridor list


THE Canary Islands have been added to the UK’s safe travel list.

It means tourists can return to Britain from the holiday destination and not have to quarantine for 14 days.

The islands join Mykonos in being added back to the list in what will be seen as a huge boost to their respective tourism industries.

The changes apply to citizens from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, although the Foreign Office still advises British nationals against all but essential international travel due to the pandemic.

The Balearic Islands have sadly not been able to return to the list.

The Canary Islands have long been a popular winter destination for Brits as temperatures remain high through the usually colder months.

“The Canaries are a hugely important market for winter travel – representing over 50% of bookings for some tour operators – so this is very welcome news for the whole sector,” said industry body Airlines UK.
