EasyJet has become the latest airline to cancel all its flight to and from Spain due to the coronavirus.

Passengers across both the UK and Spain have been voicing concerns online after being notified of the cancellations last night.

The airline followed the decision made by Jet2 yesterday, where they announced an immediate suspension of flights to and from Mainland Spain, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands for the next seven days.

Some flights from the UK were forced to turn around mid-air to comply with the cancellations.

Now, easyJet has confirmed flights from March 17 to March 29 will be cancelled, and only a number of rescue flights will operate.

It comes after coronavirus cases in Spain rose by 1,500 to more than 5,700 in just one day on Saturday.

With 191 deaths and 6,046 infections, Spain is the worst-hit country in Europe after Italy, which declared a nationwide lockdown on Monday.
