Flights From Peninsular To Lanzarote Reduced To One Per Week

For the remainder of the lockdown period, there will be only one flight per week from the mainland – a weekly flight from Madrid, which is necessary to bring the mail and other freight and supplies to the island. Passengers are only allowed on the flights if they can demonstrate a valid reason for travel during the lockdown. Passenger numbers between the mainland and The Canary Islands fell from over 10,000 at this time last year, to just over 200 last week.

Hotel Association Proposes La Liga Games Played In The Canaries

Asolan, the hotel owners association has made a proposal that the first and second divisions of La Liga should play out their remaining games of the season in the islands, once the special measures have been lifted. They suggest that the cooler mid summer temperatures here will help the players, and fans and players arriving will kick start tourism for the islands.
