On Wednesday March 9 it was announced that airline company Jet2 are suspending all flights to Poland, but what does this mean for those who have trips booked to the country and when can travellers expect flights to resume?

In a statement the budget airline claimed the "current circumstances" in the region are behind the decision, meaning the two scheduled flights each week from Newcastle Airport to Krakow are suspended.

It is understood the decision was made due to a lack of demand for flights, which see the company travel from from Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle airports.

How long are Jet2 suspending flights to Poland?

As it stands, the decision will see no flights to the nation, which shares a border with Ukraine, for two months. This will start on March 24 and continue until May 26.

What happens to my money now Jet2 flights have been suspended?

The company has promised all affected customers who have flights booked for this period that they will receive a full refund.

Is it safe to travel to Poland?

The UK Government's travel advice to those travelling to Poland remains the same as it was before Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine. Although the advice suggests UK citizens should not enter Ukraine from Poland, there is nothing to suggest travel to Poland is unsafe at this time.

The two nations share a 332 mile border which has been a vital gate to safety for over one million Ukrainian citizens who are now refugees.
