More success for our End Captivity campaign. Jet2holidays stops promoting dolphin shows

Jet2holidays has followed easyJet’s recent announcement and become the latest major tour operator in the UK to confirm it will stop selling tickets for marine parks that feature captive whales and dolphins.

The company stated that tickets to these venues will no longer be offered to its customers from March 27th.

We have run a high-profile campaign over many years successfully persuading UK holiday companies, including Virgin Holidays, Thomas Cook, British Airways, and TripAdvisor, to stop selling tickets to attractions that keep captive whales and dolphins for the public’s entertainment. So, we are delighted to hear that another major tour operator is no longer promoting this cruelty.

Jet2holidays promoted a significant number of marine parks in Europe, including Loro Parque in Tenerife and we applaud their decision which recognizes that no concrete tank can ever replicate the environment that these smart, powerful, high-social and far-ranging individuals need to thrive.

With easyJet holidays, ceasing their promotion of these cruel circuses just last week our eyes are now on TUI as the last big UK player to step up and make the change.
