Following instruction from the UK government, all airline passengers travelling to the UK from Turkey, including and Jet2holidays customers, are subject to additional security measures and hand luggage restrictions.

Customers on these flights will only be allowed to take into the aircraft cabin a regular sized mobile or smart phone (maximum size - Length: 16.0cm, Width: 9.3cm, Depth: 1.5cm). All larger phones, laptops, e-readers or tablets, as well as their cables and chargers, will need to be switched off, placed into hold luggage and checked-in before going through security. Normal cabin luggage restrictions will continue to apply.

Our flights and holidays programme is continuing to operate to Turkey as normal. As a tour operator and airline we always follow the advice of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office which shows that there are no travel restrictions in place to any of our Turkish destinations

As always, we will do everything we can to minimise disruption for our customers, however we do recommend that customers leave extra time to allow for security processing.
