Jet2 has warned customers of potential disruptions they could face when getting to their flight

Jet2 has ongoing advice for customers travelling from East Midlands Airport and Manchester Airport, as they could be delayed when going to the airport.

It has also advised on airport updates taking place in Spain that could impact travellers.

Road works at the two UK airports mean getting there could be more difficult and holidaymakers should account for this when setting off.

Jet2 flights are scheduled to run on time so travellers face missing flights if they do not factor in potential delays.

It said: "We have been made aware of road works between Junction five and six of the M56 beginning Monday 10th June expecting to be completed by the end of August 2024.

"There will be closures of the M56, please refer to National Highways for specific dates and times of closures throughout this time frame.

"Diversions will be clearly signposted throughout this time. Please allow enough time to travel to Manchester Airport as all flights are due to operate as scheduled."

The airline added: "We have been made aware of road works between Junction 23A and Junction 25 on the M1, one lane will be permanently closed on the Northbound and Southbound carriageways with a 50mph speed restriction in place.

"Delays are likely during peak hours. There will be sporadic closures of Junction 23A slip roads, between the hours of 10pm and 6pm. There will be signed diversions."

Jetsetters should be aware if hey are travelling during these times and adjust their journey accordingly. The travel advice, updated today, also shared an update on maintenance taking place at Majorca (Palma) terminals.

It said: "We'd just like to let you know that Majorca (Palma) Airport is currently undergoing some maintenance work.

"Don't worry though, we're liaising with the airport to ensure your airport experience runs as smoothly as possible.

"Our Customer Helpers will also be on hand as usual if you need any help. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience. All flights will be using check-in desks 188 to 203 and will board from Module A."

This comes as Ryanair warned of "excessive" flight delays that could impact all airlines.

European ATC staff shortages beyond the control of airlines have been affecting flights and could continue to do so in the coming months.

Wizz Air also warned many airlines could be impacted by delays when travelling this summer.
