Fragile Health Conditions Have Raised Concerns About Summer Travel Restrictions
2021-01-26 | by CusiGO
A remark by Nadhim Zahawi, the UK vaccine minister, has cooled the expectations of those who fantasize about disengagement in the summer away from the islands. When asked by Sky News whether his compatriots should wait to book a holiday, Zahavi said bluntly, “of course,” he said. “I think it’s too early. There are still 37000 people hospitalized for skovid, and it’s too early to speculate about the summer, “he added.
Conservative politicians’ words do not mean that there will be restrictions in the summer. They only want to be cautious about the background, but merely stating this assumption leads to a cold sweat in Spain’s tourism industry, which largely depends on the arrival of the first issuing country, Britain.
The vaccination campaign has opened the door to summer commuting, which will make people forget the bad 2020 of the hotel industry and its continuity in the first half of 2021. In fact, this is the third semester of the pandemic campaign, with little or no change. However, the uncertainty brought about by the arrival of new strains, especially the battle between the European Union and some laboratories over the delay in vaccine transportation, has purified the environment and raised concerns that vaccination will not be ready within the prescribed time.
Another remark made by the German Interior Minister Horst sihoff has intensified people’s doubts. According to him, the German government is considering “almost zero” international flights to reduce the entry of coronavirus variants. If I take this step, I will follow the example of Israel, which has closed bengurian International Airport in Tel Aviv since Tuesday, while leading the world in vaccination coverage.
If this measure comes into effect, it doesn’t have to continue in the summer and may even improve health in July and August, but it creates an atmosphere that is not conducive to considering another key country in Spain’s tourism industry to return to normal.
Airlines are one of the most obvious victims of these restrictions. The prospect of economic recovery has boosted the stock market of European aviation industry leaders such as Irish Ryanair. However, at the beginning of this year, the company, like other competitors, was hindered by a large number of effective vaccine advertisements because of its obligations due to further guarantee of travel continuity Test and introduce quarters during important summers. IAG and easyJet were punished even more for their repeated misgivings, with only five transactions down 14% and 13% respectively.
If the restrictions are extended, the demand for air tickets may be reduced. Major airlines have enough liquidity to survive, but for other weaker airlines, if they need Summer Dew for one year, another summer landing may lead to bankruptcy.
The prospect of the Easter holiday is even more depressing given the small visible range of vaccination effects. During the crisis, European governments have been opening up the airspace within the EU, but more and more obstacles have emerged: last weekend, Sweden banned starting from neighboring Norway to try to stop the spread of new varieties of the virus, and Belgium banned unnecessary travel. Outside the European Union, London plans to follow the example of Asian countries and force new arrivals to accept compulsory accommodation in hotels.
