World renowned travel and tour operator TUI cancels its bookings to Maldives over the next month over pandemic fears.

The island nation is listed among the ‘red-list countries’ where the Covid-19 pandemic remains at alarming levels.

Meanwhile, the international travel and tour operator puts booking cancellations on two other red-list destinations; Dubai and Turkey.

Furthermore, TUI reveals they will be cancelling all the holidays booked up to 27 June 2021 on all of the red-list countries issued by the United Kingdom.

TUI also notes that they will either fully refund or reschedule the trips for trip-goers on their respective cancellations.

The travel and tour operator, which is among the strongest ‘suppliers’ of holidaymakers to Maldives, operate strongly across the European peninsula.

As such, booking cancellations from TUI will mean a heavy decline of tourist influx to Maldives in the coming weeks.
