Balearic hotel owners may still be slightly concerned about the slump in German bookings this summer, but Spanish airlines have found they have nothing to worry about. Yesterday the President of the Association of Spanish Airlines, Felipe Navio, said that the drop in the number of German passengers is being compensated for by the increase in British tourists. Navio said that market forecasts predict that the number of British tourists to the Balearics will be similar if not better than last year, which posted an increase. As a result, airlines are not really suffering the consequences of the German decline and it appears that it is a similar case across Spain with demand for air tickets in the United Kingdom higher than last year. “Our airlines are expecting to carry similar loads as last year, which was a good year with the majority of the 100 planes, which the Association represents, 90 per cent full.”
