Twenty-two flights have already departed to the green list destinations this morning from nine airports across the UK.
The tour operator saw a huge surge in bookings when the new additions to the green list were announced.
Bookings for July alone were up more than 3,000 per cent while bookings for Madeira jumped by almost 1,500 per cent.
The airline added more flights to the Portuguese island in response, which meant thousands more seats for sale.

Jet2 CEO Steve Heapy said: “We are delighted to see our flights take off again today and to be resuming our award-winning flights and holidays programme to the Balearic Islands and Madeira.
“We know how much pent-up demand there is from our customers and independent travel agents to enjoy our award-winning flights and real package holidays once again, and we have already added extra flights to Madeira to cope with demand."
While more destinations were added to the green list, many of them have since introduced their own travel restrictions for Brits.
Both Malta and Portugal are only allowing in Brits who are fully vaccinated, while Spain requires arrivals to have both jabs or a negative test.
Madeira is excluded from the restrictions enforced by Portugal, and doesn't require Brits to be vaccinated.
Jet2 holidays and flights to amber list destinations have been cancelled until July 14.
TUI has also cancelled more flights and holidays until next month due to travel uncertainty, including to Spain, Greece and Italy.
However, Ryanair has launched a flash sale with £5 flights to countries son the green list – if you're quick.
