Spain’s Costa del Sol Lowers It’s Summer Forecast Due To The UK’s Setback.
Hoteliers on Spain’s Costa del Sol say the pace of reopenings and job recovery will slow for at least three weeks due to the UK leaving Spain – but not the Canary Islands- stranded on the amber list.
The decision by the UK government to keep Spain in the amber traffic light of restrictions for the travel of its citizens abroad and the restrictions imposed by the Spanish Government for the hotel industry have both momentarily clouded the hopeful forecasts of the Malaga tourism sector for this summer.
However, there is still time for the situation to straighten itself out, since Boris Johnson’s government is scheduled to review the guidelines on safe tourist destinations for the month of July in a few weeks.
It is also expected that the communities (in this case Andalucia) and the Government will soon end up reaching an understanding regarding the opening hours of the hotel businesses. The hospitality industry in Sevilla is threatening to take the Spanish government to the Supreme court over the measures next week if a reversal of the decision on opening hours is not made soon.
The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite Brits in Spain with their family and friends by capping the costs of PCR tests for travel.
