TUI has cancelled a raft of new flights and holidays to popular tourist destinations after the latest travel review.

The travel operator has been following the government's updates on international travel and said it would be 'continually reviewing' trips abroad.

It comes after the UK's traffic light system is to be scrapped form October 4, with the amber list ditched in a bid to simplify travel.

In a major update, TUI has issued another round of cancellations, with some flights and holidays axed until November.

Flights and holidays scrapped until late October include Dubai (non-TUI flights), Florida, Egypt, Montenegro and Tunisia.

It's good news for holidaymakers wanting to jet away to Turkey as TUI flights are back on from September 30 after instead of the original dat of October 31.

The popular destination was one of eight destinations taken off the red list in a recent UK travel update, with holidaymakers able to book a trip in time for the October holidays.

TUI also confirmed fully-vaccinated customers will not be required to take a pre-departure test before their arrival into England and the day two PCR test will be replaced with a lateral flow.

However, this does not apply to anyone flying into Scotland after the Scottish Government chose not to drop testing requirements during the recent travel review.

In a statement on TUI's website, the airline confirmed it is giving jet-setters the chance to make fee-free changes to their travel plans until 14 days before their departure, if their holiday begins before the end of October.
