Mr Raab said: “Where commercial routes remain an option, airlines will be responsible for getting passengers home.
“That means offering alternative flights at little to no cost where routes have been cancelled.
“That means allowing passengers to change tickets including between carriers.
“So for those still in those countries where commercial flights are still available, don’t wait, don’t run the risk of getting stranded.
“The airlines are standing by to help you. Please book your tickets as soon as possible.
“Where commercial flights are no longer running the government will provide financial support for special charter flights to bring UK nationals back at home.”
