MALLORCA TODAY - Balearics expect a million more tourists
From the ITB travel fair in Berlin, regional president Francesc Antich has said that up to a million more tourists can be expected to visit the Balearics this year. With sales rocketing, especially in Germany, some hotel chains have stopped taking bookings for the time being as they are concerned about overbooking, and not just in June, for which a suspension in sales had previously been announced. The anticipated boom in tourism this summer is also proving to be good news on the employment front, with hotels announcing "spectacular" increases to staff numbers.
