THE recent ETA bomb attacks which caused chaos in and around Palma last Sunday have not affected tourism on the island, the Majorcan Hotel Federation said yesterday.

Establishments belonging to the federation, which have a total of about 220'000 beds, have not registered significant cancellations, the federation reported.

The body said that the island's tourist industry, including the airport, has “returned to normal” and thanked holiday makers for their solidarity, cooperation and comprehension during what has been a very difficult period for the island.

Yesterday, the Balearic Minister for Tourism, Miguel Nadal, also thanked tourists for defying the ETA bombers and carrying on with their holidays as normal. Nadal confirmed that the number of cancellations has been “minimal” and he praised tourists for their refusal to be beaten by the terrorists who exploded four small devices on Sunday - two in the very heart of Palma and two in popular Portixol restaurants.
