Disappointment among the British for their canceled trips to Spain


London, Jun 25 (EFE) .- (Camera: Raúl Bobé / Pilar Tomás) The decision of the United Kingdom to expand the "green" list of safe covid destinations, which now include the Balearic Islands ( Spain), is welcome but it is not enough, said the companies of the tourism sector this Friday.FOOTAGE OF CENTRAL LONDON AND SOUNDBITES BY BRITISH FREYA MORLEY, ANDREW BRAGG AND ANISHA BADRI. Translation:CUT 1 (Freya Morley): I had plans to go to Spain in June, but our flights were canceled ... so next week I would have to be there, but they recently canceled our flights. That was one of my destinations that I was going to go to, and later also to Sicily, and those are our plans, but right now everything is very uncertain. CUT 2 (Freya Morley): We were going to go to Magaluf, but the flights were canceled. It was very frustrating because the destination was not on the red list and we could have gone, but the problem was with the airlines so it was quite frustrating. CUT 3 (Andrew Bragg): We have had a property in Torrevieja for 20 years. The Spanish way of life and the country are part of my life and I want to start spending money there again. You know, take my family there and help the economic recovery because I know that tourism has suffered because it is not having the same flow of British and European visitors, especially the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca, and normality has to return. . CUT 4 (Andrew Bragg): I am limited by everything that includes a 10-day quarantine right after a two-week vacation ... 10-day quarantine is not an option, I can't afford it, at my job they would not accept it. CUT 5 (Anisha Badri): I think Spain is beautiful in all aspects, culturally, the people ... and most importantly, I think we need to go, it is as an act of solidarity, to return and help the economy and soak up the good roll. Above all, I would return to Formentera.
