25-03-2020Youtube: MallorcaTourism

The Council of Majorca will tomorrow morning be launching a global tourism campaign to thank the tens of millions of loyal visitors who come to the island every year, in particular from the United Kingdom and Northern Europe, and to remind them that once the coronavirus crisis is over, the island will be ready to welcome tourists back with open arms.

The slogan for the campaign is #SeeyousoonMallorca and the aim is to maintain the strong relationship the global tourist industry has had with the island for decades.

I'm certain that when Europe emerges from the current crisis that there are many travel businesses, hotels, apartments, airlines, agents, transport, guides, leisure activity providers, who will be out of business for good. So how exactly are potential tourists to Mallorca expected to make firm plans this side of 2021. Right now it's difficult to get refunds for trips already cancelled by the airlines and transport. So where's the money coming from?

I think previous comments have summed it all up, the Balearic islands whose GDP is 80% tourism have shown how shallow they are by trying to promote a business in the middle of a world pandemic.

Currently the whole of Europe is in lockdown, people are not working, like a large population on the islands and hence not earning to spend on a holiday yet alone to pay the bills that mount up due to the loss of income.

This attitude is, Carry on regardless, unfortunately once this is all over can people afford to come to the Balearic islands, will they now be looking harder to find holidays at other destinations based on a limited budget.

Now is the time for the Balearic islands to act and be seen to want tourists, how about scrapping tourists tax, with an empty airport would it not be time to install 'ultra violet far c' lighting designed to kill airborne viruses being safe to humans.

Let's face it, travel must be responsible for the spread of the viruses and airports a petri dish of bacteria and let's not say that some of the hundreds of millions of Euros raised in tourist tax could not be spent on Tourists safety.

So Mallorca has had an anti tourism campaign for however long. Ban air Bnb to protect the hotels. Ban boats from anchoring. Ban all inclusive ( probably good ) tourist tax etc etc etc. Suddenly it wants tourists back. Be careful what you wish for.

And how, exactly are these "visitors" going to find the money for holidays ? So many people are now not working due to the current health situation and are wondering how they are going to buy food, pay bills and rent or mortgage. I´m sure that an expensive trip to Mallorca is well down their list of priorities.

A cynic might say the tens of millions of loyal visitors who have been taken for granted who come to your island every year. Totally the wrong time to even be considering such a campaign. In the U.K. we are waiting for a massive peak in the number of infections and my main concern about Mallorca is seeing a drop in the number of cases and hhealth making a gradual return for your citizens.
