Desperate Britons are scrambling to cancel flights to Italy or face a race back home to beat the 4am deadline on Sunday after the country was added to the UK’s Covid-19 quarantine list.

Easyjet, 우리카지노쿠폰 Jet2 and British Airways customers have rushed to social media to request the airlines for refunds on flights and changes to destinations.
