Jet2 issues scam warning after customers receive fake booking messages

Jet2 has posted an urgent warning to all passengers after scammers sent customers fake messages.

One of the UK’s most popular travel companies, the carrier operates various services and routes from Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports.

The tour operator is resuming more and more flights everyday as government continues to ease travel restrictions after the Coronavirus pandemic, according to Birmingham Live.

Jet2tweets stated: “URGENT CUSTOMER NOTICE.

“We have been made aware of several customers receiving messages advising to contact (and/or similar) to discuss bookings and queries. These accounts are NOT affiliated to us, so please DO NOT give personal information to them.”

“The only official account for and Jet2holidays on Twitter is @jet2tweets which is a verified ‘blue tick’ account.”

The warnings come after it emerged yesterday that UK and US travel would be eased for fully vaccinated Brits from November.

The UK Government announced last week that fully vaccinated arrivals would no longer need to take a pre-departure test from Monday, and the post-arrival day-two test can be a cheaper lateral flow rather than a PCR from the end of October.

EasyJet claims the UK Government “missed the boat” by waiting until after the summer holidays for the latest easing of travel rules.

Chief commercial officer Sophie Dekkers told the Commons’ Transport Select Committee: “In terms of sales over the weekend, they did pick up but not to the extent that we’ve seen in previous announcements because we’ve missed the summer.

“October half-term is probably the only big opportunity for people in the near term, so although we saw a good uplift in trading and sales over the weekend, we’ve missed the boat unfortunately with the summer holidays.

“There is still a question around the need for the day-two test.”
