In 2022, the main island of the Balearic Islands would like to bring at least 60 percent of the US tourists back to the island, who spent their holidays here in 2019. That writes the daily newspaper Diario de Mallorca, referring to results from a tourism congress in Miami. The direct connection between Mallorca and New York, which will be offered by United Airlines from June, is mainly intended to make traveling to Mallorca more comfortable for Americans.
By 2025, the sector is expected to grow by 1.5 percent on Mallorca. But the new cruise giant “Wonder of the Seas” will also be sailing this summer, mainly Americans, through the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and will also dock at Palma’s port. The islanders hope for a profitable summer and a new tourism wind on the island.
