After the announcement by the British Government to impose a quarantine on travelers from Spain, the Minister for Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, continues to hold working meetings with agents and tourism companies affected by this decision. Thus, today he held two telematic meetings with the EasyJet and Jet2 tour operators, to whom he explained the incidence of the pandemic in our country and the need to establish safe tourist corridors between Spain and the United Kingdom to reactivate the tourism sector and give confidence to British tourists.
Reyes Maroto has indicated that the tour operators have conveyed their concern at the British government's decision and the impact it has on their companies, and they share the government's decision to open these corridors. "We are working to open the British market as soon as possible so that tourists can come without problems to enjoy destinations that have been prepared to be safe."
The minister has reminded tour operators that the holiday destinations preferred by the British -among them the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, the Valencian Community and Andalusia- are areas with a low incidence of the virus.
Maroto is committed to holding regular meetings with tour operators to analyze the evolution of the British market and share information on the epidemiological situation in Spain and its Autonomous Communities.
