Tourism officials in the Balearic Islands are optimistic that they will make the UK’s green list for travel.
Rosa Ana Morilla Rodriguez, Director General of Tourism for the Balearic Islands, said she remains “confident” that they have the right COVID-19 figures to be included on the UK’s “green list”.
Speaking to Sky News she said: “We have the right numbers, we have the right measures in place that will allow us to be considered ‘green’.
“It’s also about the capability of your hospitals to isolate different variants of the virus, which is something that is not done by all the hospitals in Spain, but we do it here.
“I think Mallorca is such an important destination for the UK that I’m confident we could have this travel corridor.
“We have told the British ambassador that we have all the factors needed to be considered ‘green’ for the UK.
“We are safe and completely ready to welcome back British visitors.”
