Maria Frontera, the president of the Majorca Hoteliers Federation, said on Monday that it was obvious that German tourists arriving in Majorca will be "few and far between" or that the number will be "zero" because of the German government's decision to advise against travel to the Balearics.

The decision is "bad news" for the hoteliers on the island who have made "great efforts" in providing employees with the right measures, protocols and training. It will have "immediate consequences" for the Majorcan hotel sector, as was the case when the UK announced its quarantine for travellers from Spain.

Frontera added that the federation will wait to see how flight scheduling changes over the next few days and what the premature departure of some German tourists is like. She again demanded "exhaustive" controls at Balearic ports and airports for both national and international flights.

I am fed up with the hoteliers in Majorca moaning about the lack of visitors this summer. They are not the only country to feel the brunt of COVID 19. Greece, Italy, France , the UK, Australia, The USA etc. I could go on and on. The crux of the matter is this is an unusual year, and this COVID 19 can be defeated?, and hope that next year we can get back to some sort of normality. Until then keep safe, your still alive. Look after yourself , and others.
