Most of us look forward to a break at least once a year but it seems this year the world is on lock down while we continue our battle against covid 19 virus.
Most countries will begin to lift the restrictions gradually but it’s still going to hit most businesses extremely hard especially those in the hospitality sector in countries like Spain who had a record breaking 83.7 tourists last year.
Malaga region is now in phase one and although restaurants and bars can reopen from today restrictions are still very strict , the same with hotels who have to have common areas such as swimming pools closed , borders are still closed in many countries and Spain are insisting that no one other than residents should attempt to fly to Spain without a copy of your residencia documents or you'll be turned away .
Many countries are also insisting that anyone entering should now go straight into a two-week quarantine to protect others and themselves from contamination. these two week quarantine rules will apply to brits entering Spain , Italy and France its very doubtful that tourists will want to holiday in a country where they have to remain inside their accommodations as Italy in particular will grant no quarantine to the citizens of EU or Schengen area only and as England is no longer in the Eu or Schengen area this means that we will still have to quarantine as soon as landing
Flights are estimated to return late June and July but many airlines are also in financial ruin due to the grounding of nearly all flights so it remains to be seen what airlines will come through this , Ryanair ,British airways and virgin are just a few that have asked for help during this crisis, Flybe entered administration on march 5th they operated almost 40% of domestic flights in the UK.
Airlines are trying to keep their customers up to date during covid 19 and below is an estimated time for flights to be resumed but this may change depending on each country’s regulations in the next few weeks.
