A Norwich Airport spokesman said: "Restart dates are unfortunately out of our hands and all enquiries should be direct with the airline or tour operator." 

He said even the revised schedule was subject to change.

Under the government's travel 'traffic light' system, travellers to green countries will not need to isolate on their return, but they will need to take a Covid test.

Arrivals from amber countries will need to quarantine, while red-list countries have the strictest rules, with only UK or Irish nationals allowed to return and they must pay to stay in a government quarantine hotel.
