@john D this has nothing to do with profits, its about allowing so many people a chance to make a living and allow there families to eat and pay the bills. There will be nobody in the tourism industry making a profit I assure you. In Spain we don't have a benefit system anywhere like the UK. Where they give everybody or anybody something for nothing. It's about balancing both Plandemic and economy. I have'nt enjoyed this government in power one bit. But I do believe they are trying to move on from Covid and live with it. Maybe everybody else should try and do the same and stop letting it consume you from the inside out. We have the vaccine isn't that the silver bullet? Or is it just not as good as they first thought?

@John D - profits! Yeah right. Maybe just trying to keep our businesses head above water and survive is a better analogy. Some of us are more worried about being able to feed our families and keep a roof over our heads than “profit”.

We were due over in the first week of August but decided a few weeks ago to postpone it until next summer due to so much uncertainty. Being honest the Balearic government should also have postponed the reopening until the vaccination program was a bit further ahead but I guess they're putting profits before people's health & lives. History will not be kind to these people.
