Airports across Spain are preparing for a possible closure, as hotels and restaurant’s across the country close.
Incoming flights to Spain have been cancelled in the last 48 hours, as the cases are rapidly on the rise.
Tourists who were brave enough to attempt travelling to Spain, have been turned away from British airports, with many redirected mid flight.
Those who were able to board flights early yesterday are on lockdown in Spain’s hotels, worrying that they are unable to return to the UK.
Jet2 and Easy Jet have confirmed that all scheduled flights over the next couple of days are still set to leave, but passengers fear that the situation may change very quickly.
Hotels have seen a large amount of cancellations with a major reduction in bookings, with the summer approaching and the epidemic expecting to last for several months, the hospitality environment across Spain is currently not looking too promising.
Coastal areas currently represent ghost towns, with restaurants and bars closed, and forbidden access to public beach areas.
Spaniards have described the towns as being ‘deserted’ as Spain tightens its borders, encourages isolation and limits all travel.
