  • Demand from the UK increased more slowly due to uncertainty regarding quarantine

As the Costa's hotels start reopening, the latest report from Turismo Costa del Sol shows that for the week 9 to 15 June, flight bookings to Malaga increased by 62 per cent compared to the previous week, coinciding with the government's announcement that the opening of the borders would be brought forward to 21 June.

The majority of these bookings were made by people from France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Belgium, with the United Kingdom lagging behind due to uncertainty over a quarantine on their return.

However, demand from the UK increased by 42 per cent in the following week with the UK government expected to relax its policy from next Monday, 29 June.
