Ábalos Insists that Tourism will be Reactivated in June and Assures that Access to Aeroplanes will Not be Limited

The Minister for Transport has indicated that the recommendation in Spain was to limit the onboard capacity by one third, as part of the regulations generated by the application of the State of Emergency.

The Minister for Transport, José Luis Ábalos, has indicated that the recommendation in Spain was to limit the capacity on board aircraft by one-third as part of the regulations generated by the application of the State of Emergency.

In an interview with RTVE on Monday, the minister said that “for the time being”, the Spanish Government, is not going to limit air travel in view of the fact that the European Commission has not established such a restriction. The EC offered its recommendations for the exit from lockdown for tourism and transport last Wednesday. In addition, Ábalos reiterated his confidence that tourism may ‘flow’ as early as June.
