The managing director of TUI Germany, Marek Andryszak, believes political fears about increasing corona infections as a result of Mallorca air travel are exaggerated. “We never tire of making it clear that package holiday travelers are not at risk when returning to Germany. Several studies have shown that guests behave responsibly on vacation and do not produce higher incidences, “Andryszak told the newspaper” Bild “.

There are no parties on the island, no free beer and the restaurants are only available for delivery services from 5 p.m. “Of the 1000 hotels that are open in midsummer, less than 10 percent will be available at Easter.”
