Jet2 hopes to return to the Canary Islands and move 1.65 million tourists
The Jet2 tour operator plans to move 1.65 million British tourists to the Canary Islands from May. The company already has confirmed 47% more air bookings from the UK to the Islands between May this year and March 2022 than in the same period of 2020. Jet2 CEO Steve Heapy yesterday shared this data with the president of the Canary Islands, Angel Víctor Torres, and the City Of Tourism, Yaiza Castilla, with which he held a videoconference meeting to analyze the prospects for recovery of the sector after the covid crisis. At this meeting, Jet2 moved to Torres and Castile "his good forecasts in British tourism flows to the Archipelago from July", as highlighted by the Government Presidency in a statement.
Boris Johnson's announcement to lift restrictions on non-essential international travel to UK citizens from 17 May has broken out the British's search and holiday bookings, a situation that for the Canary Islands means that there are good forecasts for the recovery of tourist flows with this country from July,
