OPERATIONAL UPDATES DUE TO COVID-19  

The following is a list of closures as notified as at 17.00hrs, FRIDAY, 27th March 2020.   This is a fluid situation and as such there may be further closures we are not yet aware of.  Any affected services will be cancelled and advised to you.  Be aware that as at 25th March 2020 the UK & Irish governments advised “all hotels to close for commercial use as quickly as possible” although there is no specific timeline detail.  We assume this will be for a minimum of 3 weeks in line with the current stay at home advice from government.  

  

The ASA teams are all fully operational remotely and ready to answer any queries you may have, and of course ready to receive all your bookings for travel later in the year #don’t cancel it, rebook it!
