Good News! Gran Canaria Airport will hopefully be seeing more and more passengers, to boost the tourism industry for the island.
This is due to the fact that many EU countries have recently updated their quarantine restrictions of late. England’s travel quarantine is to be scrapped from July 10th 2020 for arrivals from Spain (including Gran Canaria) next week! This means that passengers to and from Gran Canaria or any other of the 13 countries are not required to self-isolate for 14 days when they return.
During the pandemic the UK Foreign Office had been warning against “all but essential” travel from the U.K. However with the easing of lockdown restrictions this has now been updated, allowing travel to Spain and The Canary Islands permissible. It is early days and there will be a constant review and update on the current situation in any of these countries. There is talk of a traffic light system to gauge the risk of travel to each country, with Spain having the “green light”
This brings good news to the airline industry as they have born the brunt of the near collapse of the economy due to covid-19.
