The president of Aviba, Xisco Mulet, says that you have to arrive in the best conditions at the start of the tourist season
Travel agencies assume that the increase in controls at the airports of the islands from today so that all travelers, national or international, arrive at the archipelago with a negative PCR test may stop reservations to the Balearic Islands in the coming weeks. But next, the president of the Abiva employer in the islands, Xisco Mulet, sees them as necessary at this time.
On the one hand, because, according to Mulet, there will hardly be any tourist establishments open at Easter and, on the other hand, because now the priority is “the control of the pandemic and the speeding up of the vaccination campaign, both in Spain and in the main source markets” . All hopes are pinned on May for some of the demand to pick up.
Regarding the increase in connectivity, both national and international links starting next week, Mulet points out that it is something temporary, but that demand will drop again in a couple of weeks.
The president of Aviba insists that the objective of the Balearic Islands is to reach a very low cumulative incidence of covid cases to be able to start the season with guarantees.
