TUI has cancelled flights to La Palma up to and including 27 October due to an ongoing volcanic eruption that has led to around 6,000 people being evacuated from their homes on the Spanish island.

La Palma has also been struck by multiple earthquakes, with two more on Monday following several over the weekend.

They have caused a fresh surge of lava from the volcano that first erupted two weeks ago.

Canary Islands’ regional President Angel Victor Torres told the media: “It’s not over yet, we don’t even know how long there is to go. We’re in nature’s hands.”

In a statement on its website, TUI said: Due to the ongoing situation we’ve unfortunately had to cancel all flights to La Palma departing up to and including 27 October 2021. All impacted customers will be contacted directly to discuss their options.

“We’d like to reassure customers due to travel to any other Canary Islands that our flights are currently operating as planned however we will continue to monitor the situation and contact them should their holiday be impacted.

“We’d like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this time.”
