This means it will have flown “slightly less” than the 40% of pre-coronavirus pandemic capacity it previously said it would operate between July and September.
From 4am on Wednesday travellers arriving in England from Lesbos, Tinos, Serifos, Mykonos, Crete, Santorini or Zakynthos (also known as Zante) must self-isolate for 14 days.
