THE winter tourism debate is certainly proving to be a burning issue close to the hearts of many out readers who either live in the Balearics or would like to be more regular visitors but cannot.
It appears that while there is a great deal of sympathy and support for local businesses battling to remain open through the winter season, a large number of regular visitors are left feeling frustrated at the lack of flights to the island during the winter.
One Scottish visitor contacted the Bulletin yesterday to point out that there are two major flaws in the Balearics' winter tourism plan.
A former apartment owner who a few years ago sold up to return home to Glasgow, the Scotsman said that the winter reductions in flights by many of the airlines and the key tour operators has left him with few, if any, direct and regular flights from Glasgow to Palma. This winter we're going to Tenerife. We want to return to Majorca, we love Majorca but it's neither time nor cost effective if we have to fly via London, he said.
