As Spain’s state of alarm comes to an end and borders open throughout Europe. Mallorca has remained one of the areas with the lowest rate of COVID19 in the country and in the Mediterranean. It was elected as the first Spanish destination to undertake a trial study to allow German tourists into the island without quarantine and put the new health protocols to the test.
Eduardo Gamero, President of the Fomento del Turismo de Mallorca:
“It’s important that our visitors realise that Mallorca is an island that was not affected by this pandemic as our colleagues on the Spanish Mainland. We offer visitors a quality experience in a healthy and safe environment with a modern health service. Mallorca is ready to welcome visitors and allow them enjoy the island like never before.“
Airlines – Every week more airlines such as Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2 and British Airways are announcing the opening of their routes into Palma. Tui is operating flights from Germany together with Eurowings and Lufthansa and Norwegian Airways will operate routes from Scandinavia from July.
