Cheap flights to ‘green list’ destinations as holidays for Brits resume May 17

It's official, Brits can finally head overseas from May 17 after the government announced international travel can resume.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps revealed international travel can begin to safely open in a couple of weeks.

He outlined stricter border control measures with a "green, amber and red" list to determine the restrictions in each location.

Green means people will not need to quarantine on return to England, while people mustn't travel to amber and red places leisurely.

There are 12 countries and territories on the "green list".

The places are Portugal including Azores & Madeira, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Gibraltar, Falkland Islands and Israel.

Here we look at some of the cheapest flights for these locations.


Ryanair has released its sizzling summer savers which include flights to a number of locations.

If you want to head to Portugal, there are flights to Faro from £14.99 one-way from Aberdeen.

Heading from Manchester? You can book a one-way ticket to Porto for just £19.99.

Alternatively the prices are £5 cheaper if you're booking the same location from Liverpool.

There are also flights available to Lisbon for less than £23.

The "green list" will be reviewed every three weeks and it's important to check travel restrictions to where you're flying to.
