Airline Jet2 have issued some cyber security tips to passengers ahead of the August Bank Holiday weekend. Among the advice handed out by airline, which flies from Stansted Airport, includes how to avoid being scammed around Covid tests.
The budget flyer explained in a tweet that it does not arrange PCR tests or 'Fit to Fly' documents pre-flight with customers, suggesting some are being targeted by conmen. Jet2 said: "We do not arrange PCR tests or fit to fly documents directly with customers please do not respond to requests for this."
Jet2's advice also included information about paying money into private bank accounts, which the company said it would never ask anyone to do. It said: "We would never ask you to pay money directly into an individual's private bank account."

On top of this, the airline also spoke about how and where to book your holiday and contacting them directly. It advised customers should use the company's official websites or through approved partners.
The tweet said: "You should only book Jet2.com flights or Jet2 holidays directly with us or through one of our approved ABTA registered Trade Partners.
"Always check company telephone numbers and documentation. Scammers may pretend to be a legitimate company. We do not call from 0203 numbers.
"Only contact us using the methods shown on the contact us pages on the Jet2.com and Jet2holidays website."
Jet2 has also encouraged customers not to purchase credit notes through social media. The tip said: "Do not purchase any form of Jet2.com or Jet2holidays credit notes via social media as they are unlikely to be honoured."
