Bookings for the summer have increased

Mr. Soria has emphasized that in summer 2013 AENA estimate an increase by 0.6% on movements and by 0.8% on seats.

However, he pointed out that these figures will be subject to the development of the ongoing isues in countries like Greece and Turkey, which compete with Spain, specially in the segment of ‘sun and beach’.

Mr. Soria has highlighted that Spain is the world leader in the sector with 57.7 million of tourists in the past year, a positive inclination that is keeping on in this exercise, from January to May the arrivals increased over 3% and the spending increased over 7%. However he reminded that the adverse economic situation along with unemployment and the fall of consumption have caused a negative behavior in the domestic tourism. This is why the Spanish Government has launched the advertising campaign “Spain, the destination you have inside” which is already in airports and train stations.
