The Chief Executive of the Palma-based Melia Hotel Group, Gabriel Escarrer, slammed those who have said that they do not want to see a return of the record number of tourists who came to the island in 2019.

"At this point in time, statements from those who do not want to see a return of the record number of tourists who visit the islands in 2019, are a complete lack of respect for those who are unemployed, closed companies and those people who are having severe financial problems...."

Escarrer has underlined the fact that if Mallorca does not have a summer season this year it would cause severe problems for the local economy.
