Despite all appeals to not travel, thousands of holidaymakers flew to Mallorca at the beginning of the Easter holidays.
Yesterday, 60 aircraft from Germany arrived in the island’s capital Palma, another 70 were expected for today, according to the airport. The autobahns in Germany, on the other hand, remained pretty empty, as the ADAC announced. There was also no wave of travel at Deutsche Bahn. Long-distance traffic is at the low level of recent weeks, said a spokeswoman. In contrast to Mallorca, hotels, holiday apartments and campsites are closed to tourists in Germany.
The German government removed the Spanish island from the list of risk areas in mid-March. From Tuesday, however, every flight passenger arriving from abroad must show a negative corona test.
