Jet2 has urged customers to be wary of criminals online when preparing to take off on a late summer holiday. The budget airline, which operates flights from Stansted Airport, tweeted six useful tips that travellers should keep in mind.
The advice was presented on a graphic, which was posted with the caption "IMPORTANT REMINDER". Most of the warnings were about scammers pretending to be Jet2 for a number of different reasons.
One point regarded pre-travel Covid tests, which the airline says it doesn't arrange with customers itself. It said: "We do not arrange PCR tests or Fit to Fly documents directly with customers, please do not respond to requests for this."

Travellers were also warned about the dangers of using social media to buy credit notes, with the airline warning they would likely be fake and are "unlikely to be honoured". Customers were also told to only book flights through the Jet2.com website, or through the airline's "ABTA registered Trade Partners".
The budget carrier also urged people to check the account they are paying money to. It said: "We would never ask you to pay money directly into an individual's private bank account."
There was also advice on making sure that it really is Jet2 you are communicating with. The company said: "Only contact us using the methods shown on the Contact Us pages on the Jet2.com and Jet2holidays websites."
Travellers should also check telephone numbers they get calls from any any documentation they receive. The airline said: "Scammers may pretend to be a legitimate company. We do not call from 0203 numbers."
