Mallorca-bound British tourists have been warned that they face a six hour wait at the airport because of Covid restrictions, safety measures and paperwork. The warning was made by the British travel industry.

The warning comes as Britain prepares to allow international travel with reports indicating that Mallorca could be on the "green list" which would allow "easier travel" to the island. But the long delays at the airport and the need for a PCR test could dent demand for holidays to the island.

Palma airport has said that it is prepared to meet the challenges of Covid travel.

In which case we will not bother to come to Mallorca. Much easier to go to Greece, Malta, Cyprus etc. Travel needs to be a pleasant experience - not purgatory.

Good to hear that Palma airport is prepared, the rest of the island isn't though of course, so as long as the tourists don't go outside the airport, we're in no danger of our cases sky-rocketting again.
