On 1 April 2020, the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued an update to its travel advice for Algeria to include the following: “The UK will operate a special flight from Algiers on 2 April for British nationals and their direct dependents to return to the UK.

“The cost of the flight is £186 per person.

“To be eligible to take this flight, you must be normally resident in the UK. Eligibility will be checked before tickets are issued.

“If you wish to travel, book tickets on the CTM website as soon as possible.

“Tickets will not be on sale at the airport. Do not travel to the airport without a confirmed ticket.

“To make a booking, you will need:

“Full passport and contact details for each traveller you are registering.

“Your UK home address and postcode.

“Your means of payment, such as credit or debit card details.

“If you cannot pay the cost of the ticket, call CTM to discuss your options. If you have exhausted all other options available to you for getting funds, you may be eligible to apply for an emergency loan to cover the cost of the ticket. You would need to repay the loan when you are back in the UK.”
