Hotel occupancy in August was at its highest in the Balearics. The average occupancy of places was 90.3%. The Canaries, with 85.3%, were second on the list. The Balearics also experienced a slight upturn in the total number of overnight stays - plus 0.9% compared with August 2017 - and accounted for almost 35% of all foreign tourist overnight stays in Spain. Catalonia, with 21.2% of the total, suffered a fall of 3.5%, while in the Canaries (19%) there was a drop of five per cent in overnight stays, attributable to a reduced number of seats on flights following the collapse of certain airlines.
