“Many hotels are planning to open later because of the transport strike...” | P. PELLICER
Summer 2022 was being heralded as the year of recovery. It was when the island was expected to recover from the pandemic. Hoteliers were confident. Tour firms were upbeat, and then sadly everything went wrong. The strike by some Spanish lorry drivers has hit the hotel industry hard. Vital equipment has not arrived from the mainland which has meant that some hotels will not be able to open on time. There is also concern that higher fuel costs will mean that the price of a package holiday will be far more.
