Flights between UK, Spain up 400% as quarantine rules changed

Description

Madrid, Jul 19 (EFE).- The number of flights between the United Kingdom and Spain increased 400% since July 8 as British holiday-makers took advantage of news rules that mean UK residents returning to England from so-called amber destinations no longer have to observe a quarantine period if they are fully vaccinated.The data from the Spanish Airlines Association will come as good news for Spain’s tourism industry, which has seen a boost in bookings as British beachgoers scramble to get abroad this summer.“Today alone there are 31 flights from the United Kingdom, which account for some 6,000 people,” Toni Mayor, president of Hosbec, a hotel and tourism business association in Valencia, told Efe.
