Airlines confirm a minimum of 125,000 weekly seats to the Canary Islands from July

Tenerife South Airport

Connectivity with the Canary Islands is beginning to show signs of recovery with the sale of airline seats by the main airlines. For the month of July, airlines confirm a minimum of 125,178 weekly seats to link Spanish and European cities with the archipelago.

As the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce of the Government of the Canary Islands, Yaiza Castilla, points out, "this reopening is the result of continuous conversations with the airlines in the transition towards reopening borders. This is good news, but must be taken with caution since it is only 8.5% of the capacity operated in July last year. "

Although the airlines insist that it is a forecast and that it may increase, Castilla recalls that "we cannot lose sight of the evolution of the pandemic and the situation in the issuing markets. We still have to fight against people's fear of flying and the recommendations of each country, which include promoting national tourism and encouraging domestic travel." She added that "in some cases, Spain is seen as one of the destinations to avoid because it has been one of the most punished by COVID-19. For this reason, we must be aware that although the sale of seats is is very positive, the recovery will be gradual".

The airlines that have confirmed their schedule for July are Aer Lingus, Air Europa, Air Nostrum, Binter, Brussels Airlines, Condor, easyJet, Iberia, Jet2, Norwegian, Ryanair, Swiss Air, Transavia, TUIfly Belgium, Vueling and Wizzair.

In practice, it means that Gran Canaria and Tenerife again receive flights from the main Spanish cities, while Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and La Palma will also be connected to some national airports again. Specifically, passengers may arrive from Alicante, Barcelona, ​​Bilbao, Madrid, Malaga, Melilla, Murcia, Oviedo, Palma de Mallorca, Pamplona, ​​Santander, Santiago de Compostela, Seville, Valencia, Valladolid, Vigo, Vitoria and Zaragoza.

In the case of Europe, airlines also show a reopening with the availability of seats on flights from Amsterdam, Basel, Bergamo, Berlin, Birmingham, Bologna, Bournemouth, Bristol, Bruges, Brussels, Bordeaux, Cologne, Cork, Dublin, Dusseldorf , East Midlands, Edinburgh, Eindhoven, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Hamburg, Hannover, Leipzig, Liege, Lille, Liverpool, London, Lyon, Manchester, Milan, Munich, Nantes, Porto, Oslo, Paris, Pisa, Rotterdam, Shannon, Stuttgart, Toulouse, Warsaw, Venice, Wroclaw and Zurich.

The counselor adds that "in total, there are 18 Spanish and 44 European cities that will debut the reopening of connectivity with the islands. Good news that conveys internationally that the Canary Islands are ready to receive tourists again this summer" .

At the same time, the Ministry recently announced the investment of 6.6 million euros to promote tourism in the islands and counteract the COVID-19 crisis. Castilla points out that "we are preparing a promotional offensive like never before in the coming months, aimed at both the domestic and national markets to try to support demand. This is practically twice as much investment as in previous summer campaigns and will be developed in all types of media, including digital and social networks."
