Due to the low number of corona cases on the island, the first hotels in Mallorca are planning to reopen their doors soon.

The Easter vacation is within reach.

While the Balearic Islands want to enable quarantine-free entry for corona-vaccinated people from May, vacationers could enjoy the sun on Mallorca again before Easter.

The current low number of cases on the island has already meant that restaurants have been allowed to open their outdoor areas until 5 p.m. since March 2.

Now hotels are slowly starting to welcome visitors again.

Mallorca vacation in sight?

First hotels and airlines ready to go before Easter

The Robinson Club Cala Serena of the Tui Group in Cala d'Or is now taking the first step.

Although the Foreign Office is currently warning of unnecessary tourist trips to the Balearic Islands, the hotel's website says: “The

travel warning currently in force

by the German Foreign Office

for Spain is not a travel ban

.

In this respect, the decision to travel on the basis of the warning is at the sole discretion of each guest. ”That is why the Robinson Club wants to reopen its doors on March 20th.

If you do not want to start your booked stay due to the travel warning, you can rebook it free of charge or cancel it free of charge if you arrive before March 31, 2021.

Other hotel chains on Mallorca want to follow suit soon: Meliá, Hipotels, Grupotel, Iberostar and Barce Barceló also want to reopen in April and May, according to the “Mallorca Zeitung”.

One of the reasons is the

decision by the British government to allow travel again from May

.

But the prospect of an EU-wide corona vaccination pass also ensures cautious optimism in the travel industry.

In Spain they have been working on travel corridors for a long time, which should soon make safe travel possible again.

resume offering services to Palma from up to 16 airports in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in the coming weeks.

It should start as early as March so that

in the summer of 2021

.

Lufthansa recently announced its program for the summer - with the focus here on trips to the Canary Islands and Greece.

Corona situation on Mallorca: will the travel warning be removed soon?

Since the corona incidence in the Balearic Islands is currently below 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants, the travel warning from the Federal Foreign Office could soon be dispensed with.

This would make a vacation on Mallorca possible without a subsequent quarantine in Germany.
