Anyone travelling to the UK from France must quarantine for two weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has been announced.

It comes after the country recorded 2,524 new infections on Wednesday, the highest since restrictions were eased in France.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson previously told travellers to brace for restrictions in terms of returning from visits to the country.

And now Jet2 has confirmed flights to the country will continue – despite the new quarantine rules.

A spokesperson said: "We note the latest government advice regarding travel to France from the UK, and we are planning to operate our scheduled programme of flights to Bergerac and La Rochelle."

The spokesperson continued: "Customers who no longer wish to travel to these destinations can rebook with no admin fee.

"We are not planning to operate to any other destination in France until October, and we are of course reviewing the situation very closely.”

According to the Foreign Office, Brits are currently advised against all but essential travel to France.

It said on its website: "This advice is currently being kept under constant review. Travel disruption is still possible and national control measures may be brought in with little notice."

It comes after easyJet cancelled France holidays after the country was kicked off the quarantine-free list.

Malta and the Netherlands are also no longer "exempt" from the government’s travel rules.

Those who have holidays booked this month will be affected by the easyJet cancellations.
