Flu outbreak - ABTA Statement

ABTA has been, and will continue to advise members on the ongoing situation regarding the outbreak of flu in Mexico, requesting them to be vigilant and issuing them with relevant information from the World Health Organisation, Health Protection Agency and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. ABTA has also posted relevant links on www.abta.com.

At the moment there are no suggestions that there have been any outbreaks in any tourist areas, and the Foreign Office has not imposed any travel restrictions, and as a result normal booking conditions apply. Please contact your ABTA travel agent or tour operator for further assistance.

If customers are concerned about vaccinations or symptoms they should contact a health professional or their GP. 

ABTA will continue to monitor the situation closely and is in contact with all relevant authorities.
