Lanzarote, Ibiza and Tenerife lead Spain’s tourism recovery
The top spot went to Lanzarote, which beat 2019 figures in July, followed closely by Tenerife, increasing its passenger numbers by almost 30,000.
On the Balearic Islands, the party hotspot of Ibiza is the big winner and comes in second place overall. Not to be outdone, Palma de Mallorca operated 30% more flights last week compared to the same period in 2019.
According to the survey of the hotel situation by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), the Balearic Islands were in July the Spanish autonomous community with the highest hotel occupancy rate, filling almost 90% of beds, followed by Canary Islands, with 74.9%.
Despite this, Spain tripled the number of international tourists it welcomed in June, reaching 7.5 million (from 8 million in 2019), with visitor spending also approaching 2019 levels.
