TUI has cancelled more flights until next month, just days before the school half term holidays.
The tour operator was forced to cancel flights earlier this month to La Palma due to the volcano eruption.

The eruption, which started on September 19, has continued with the Canary Islands president saying there was “no signs that an end of the eruption is imminent”.
This has led to TUI cancelling more flights until November.
Their latest statement said: “Due to the ongoing situation we’ve unfortunately had to cancel all flights to La Palma departing up to and including 3 November 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.”
