Dutch airline Transavia is to resume flights to six destinations in Greece, Portugal and Spain from June 4.

The official Dutch advice is to avoid all but essential travel, but ‘some of our passengers want to visit family or their second home,’ Transavia said. Visitors to Spain will first have to go into two weeks quarantine on landing.

‘Responsibility lies with the passenger and the decision whether or not to travel rests with them,’ the KLM subsidiary said. Greece is still closed to the Dutch but Transavia expects the ban to be lifted on May 31.

Easyjet, which operates a European base at Schiphol airport, is also planing to resume some flights, mainly internal British and French services. More will be added ‘as the lockdown within Europe is eased,’ the airline said.

Face masks will be compulsory on all Transavia and Easyjet services.
