Tourism in Mallorca

Tourists on the beach in Mallorca.

The Association of Hotel Chains and the Majorcan Hotel Federation has drawn up a plan to welcome foreign tourists back to the island in early July.

Over the past week, the two associations have been in discussions with leading UK tour operators such as TUI UK and Jet2 and market leaders in Germany.

The president of the Association of Hotel Chains, Gabriel Llobera, explained that the idea is to open hotels gradually and where and when demand justifies the needs of the various hotels signing up to the initiative. "All parties involved share the same objective and common ground. Hotel and tour operators have shown a clear interest in kick starting the tourist industry in Majorca once the easing of the lockdown has been completed in Spain.”

In Germany, for example, the Minister for Tourism, Thomas Bareiss, has not ruled out allowing Germans to holiday in the Balearics or the Greek islands once the pandemic has stabilised and all of the required medical controls and regulations are in place.

Personally I feel Mallorca will be insane to open up to tourism so soon this year, The virus could be brought back to Mallorca by anyone? As for life must go on, not if your dead it won't. We have a large number of friends in Mallorca who we will miss seeing this year.

Personally as much as I want to see them I will not risk my life or that of my Wife in doing so, flying is out for us until there is a vaccine. Again this horrible virus has a life of its own it respects no one be they children or adults everyone is at risk. Would you put your family and children at risk or any of your family for that matter not knowing what this virus could do to them?

Stay safe Mallorca yes its costing so much but we will all be back as soon as its safe to do so and even more so to support the people and our freinds in Mallorca.

Same here Dave (below) We come to Majorca at least 3 times a year, its the best place on earth!! But like you, we wont be risking anything yet until next year when hopefully things will have changed. I really don't want to go on a plane where everyone is near to each other in a confined space. It only takes one person who may have the virus......

If the powers decide on starting up tourism again,surely we ,the paying public need conformation of what is going to be available.Are you going to be allowed to swim,use pools,will the bars be back to normal will hotel facilities be the same restaurant bar ,sun beds Evan will the entertainment in hotels be going be as normal.I think the tour operators are pushing to hard what is the point of spending over £3k for two weeks if there are any restrictions at all.I know this year is destroyed but if you don't get what you pay for do you think people will be willing to pay again for later in the year or for next year I think not please don't jump the gun Mallorca the backlash if anyone falls ill with the media the way it is today could cost a hell of a lot more than patience
