Our weekly news about the lockdown and exit plans
The Spanish government wants to extend the “state of emergency” about one month, because of the Corona-pandemic. The minister president Pedro Sánchez told in a live TV speech on 15th May, that he will apply for a last extend about one month.
Currently the European Comission, the Ministry of Transport and other organizations publish guides and guidelines on how to safely resume activity in the different subsectors of tourism. Hosteltur.com reports: “Lanzarote will request to be the destination of the first safe flight after the Covid-19 lockdown.” Also the German TUI chef Marek Andryszak tells in an interview with RTL that flights will take place this summer and that he is optimistic that tourism will be possible. But currently nobody can say when tourism will be possible again.
Reaction of the tourism sector
More and more organizations of touristic sectors complain about the strong restrictions and ask for more liberties. Specially the Canary Islands where there have been the least corona infections of Spain organize themselves for the preparation of a save return to a restart of tourism activity. Islands like Lanzarote are specialized on land and water sports. This sector can be structured very safe, because of activities you do in small groups or alone. There are no big cities and the beaches are not overfilled. Also sailing will be one of the safest activities in times of Corona because of the given fact that you are in a small group on the sea without having much contact to others. There has to be a difference between mass and individual tourism that supports the locals!
