Spanish airport operator, AENA, has reported 9,063 fewer flights compared to the same period in 2019.
Airports in Spain have now reopened and have been back in action since July 1 but according to airport operators, AENA, just 3,937 flights have been scheduled over the weekend. 1,936 flights have been scheduled for Saturday and 2,001 flights have been scheduled for Sunday following cuts in international flights made by airlines worldwide in response to the global travel ban.
Despite the statistics, however, airport operators are confident that the number of flights to Spain will increase over the coming weeks as confidence slowly returns to the travel sector and travel bridges negotiated between countries come into effect.
Over the years Spain has made huge investments in tourism and have been agressively promoting the country as a safe place for holidays.
