SEVILLA, 2 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Secretary of State for Tourism, Fernando Valdes, has predicted this Wednesday, with "all the caution that the moment requires", the recovery, by the end of the year, of the tourism sector in Andalusia to pre-pandemic levels, in 2019.
In an interview on Canal Sur Radio, collected by Europa Press, Valdes has detailed that the schedule of flights to Andalusia, both national and international trips, for the remainder of the year "is already above 2019 levels". This after "a good summer season", so that "the prospects are especially good".
Likewise, he pointed out that, between the months of November and December, the scheduled capacity on flights to Andalusia already exceeds 2.3 million seats -about 1.5 million international and 800,000 domestic flights-.
In addition, considering international reservations to fly to Andalusia between November 1 and January 31, "we are at 95% of 2019 levels, with some source markets, such as Germany and the United States, which are above pre-pandemic levels.
"I believe that the data effectively confirms the consolidation of tourism after the pandemic", although he has insisted that the current moment requires caution because "there are many elements of uncertainty about the economy and tourism".
