British tourists at Palma airport.


The Balearics are on Britain´s green list and the first British tourists started to arrive this morning but there is a danger that they could turn red!

The Palma Met Office is forecasting record temperatures for this weekend and the temperatures could reach 37 degrees Centigrade, according to Palma Met Office, which would be a record for this year.

"Summer starts this weekend and the heat is on," said a Met Office spokesperson this morning.

Over the next few days thousands of British tourists are expected to arrive with British travel giant Jet2 programming 40 flights over three days.

The temperatures in the resorts will be even higher on Saturday night as England hosts Ukraine in the Europan soccer chamionshios.

Well we didn’t know this was going to happen did we. Similar articles last week. The government of Majorca/Spain need to clarify if U.K. citizens are welcome or not. It is known that extra entry requirements where needed for U.K. citizens post Brexit and additional Covid certification in addition. The risk of the airport acting like a virus Petri dish is a great way to spread the virus across populations in recirculating air conditioned buildings. People in the future will holiday elsewhere is this is the welcome experience you first receive in a resort and take their spending elsewhere.
