UK airline seat allocation for winter and summer 2021 blow for the Balearics with forecasts revealing massive cuts.
REPRESENTATIVES of Spain’s tourist bureaus in the main overseas markets met at the Mallorca Hoteliers Federation’s annual meeting on Monday, December 14.
During the meeting, deputy director of the London bureau, Carlos Ruiz, said that the UK forecast for the winter in the Balearics was 60 per cent fewer airline seats than last year with just over 100,000 seats scheduled.
In a second blow, he said the current projection for summer 2021 is around 3.1 million which is almost 30 per cent lower than 2019, but triple those in 2020.
Ruiz said health data will be crucial, explaining “if the health situation is favourable”, all efforts will likely be made to get tourists to Spain.
He said airlines are currently delaying flights to Mallorca until the start of spring, but if the UK government includes the Balearics on its safe travel list, there would be an immediate response.
