Nov 29 (Reuters) - Travel company TUI (TUIGn.DE) said on Monday all UK customers due to travel before Dec. 21 would be able to change to another date for free if they chose to, in light of new travel curbs to contain the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant.

The United Kingdom has restricted travel from southern Africa. The variant was first detected in South Africa last week.

TUI has around 1,600 travel agencies and online portals, five airlines, over 400 hotels, 15 cruise liners in major holiday destinations around the globe.
