Since the green list was announced last night, many airlines have announced new deals and routes from July 1.
Britons can now save up to £300 when travelling with British Airways this summer as the airline is now releasing new holiday packages to the newly green-listed countries.
The holidays will have to be between June 30 and September 30, 2021 to the following destinations:
Antigua, Barbados, Bermuda, Grand Cayman, Grenada, Ibiza, Madeira, Malta, Mallorca, Menorca and Turks & Caicos.
The company is also is offering holiday packages that include seven nights in Malta with prices starting from £359, seven nights in Mallorca from £469 or a week in Madeira starting at £429.
EasyJet has added more than 50,000 seats on sale to new European green list destinations for the next months.
New routes include Malta from Bristol starting on July 9 and from Luton on July 11.
Thousands of additional seats will be available from the UK to the Balearic Islands in the next months.
The low-cost airline is offering flights to Palma de Mallorca starting at £28.99 and to Ibiza and Menorca for £32.99.
EasyJet CEO, Johan Lundgren, said: “We really want to get back to what we do best and connect people across Europe so we welcome these additions to the green list and in response we have put over 50,000 more seats on sale to new and existing routes to green destinations.
“And with two thirds of UK adults expected to be double jabbed by July 19, now is the time to let British citizens take advantage of the success of the vaccination programme so we urge the Government to move quickly to remove quarantine and testing for fully vaccinated people travelling from amber and green countries.
“This is overdue and unless testing is also removed flying could become the preserve of the rich again.
“EasyJet is ready and able to ramp up and we look forward to playing our part in reuniting people with their loved ones or take them on a well-deserved break.”
Jet2 has also put new green list destinations on sale from July 1.
The UK’s second-biggest tour operator has added 70 additional flights and put flights and packages on sale to Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca, Madeira and Malta.
Jet2 CEO, Steve Heapy, said: “UK holidaymakers have looked on with envy as other countries across Europe have opened up.
“It is finally their turn to get away on their precious holidays to the sunshine and we could not be more excited about taking them away,” he said.
An update on amber list destinations will be given to customers “in due course”, the company added.
The operator has pushed back the resumption of its Turkey programme until July 22, because the country remains on the Government’s red list.
This decision remains “under review”, Jet2 said.
Ryanair has also added 200,000 extra seats from the UK to Malta, Ibiza and Mallorca for the months of July, August and September.
