Brits issued major travel warning if they're flying this Easter

Brits issued major travel warning if they're flying this Easter

It could cause big issues so it's better to know in advance and plan accordingly

Many of us are taking advantage of the long Easter weekend and flying overseas.

But a major travel warning has been issued to certain passengers taking to the skies.

With two bank holidays on Friday and Monday (29 March and 1 April), it has cost many just four days of annual leave to get a 10 day holiday in the bag.

Talk about playing the system in the best possible way.

Those jetting off will be hoping delays will be at a minimum although will be braced, especially with Easter being one of the only times of the year families can go abroad with their school-age children.

Well, one airline is telling Brits that delays are pretty much on the cards if they're heading to one of Europe's most popular destinations.

TUI, which offers everything from all-inclusives and cruises to simple cheap flights, has apologised in advance for delays that Brits are expected to face - especially those flying to Palma airport on the Spanish island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean Sea.

Heading to Mallorca itself comes with a warning for Brits over something called the 'six-drink rule' that is enforced at numerous hotels on the island, including all-inclusives.

There's also a smoking ban on the island - but the island does come with the best sunny beach in all of Europe.

Those flying to Palma - which is Mallorca's only major international airport and the third biggest airport in Spain - will face delays due to unannounced strike action.

TUI said: “The security screening company, Trablisa, has begun an unannounced strike which is expected to continue until March 31st.

"This may lead to longer queues and waiting times at security checkpoints. There is a possibility that your flight could be delayed due to security screening delays.

“We recommend that you factor in additional time for security checks when arriving at the airport.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding."

It comes on top of another travel warning at Palma airport - this time from Jet2.

Maintenance work is taking place at the airport with a number of terminal changes in place.

On its website, Jet2 said: “We are working with the airport to ensure that any disruption to your airport experience will be kept to a minimum. Due to this ongoing work you may be waiting slightly longer than normal to clear immigration in both departures and arrivals, our friendly customer helpers will be on hand to help.

“We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding should you experience an extended wait time, which is beyond our control.

“All flights will be using check-in desks 31 to 33 and boarding for all flights will be from Module C.

"This information will also be displayed on the airport information screens."
