Ashotel demands rescue plan from the State after the UK's travel decision
The Hoteliers Association of Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro (Ashotel) has said they are "deeply disappointed by the new blow" that the Canary Islands have received after the British Government's announcement that it has removed the archipelago from its safe travel list and imposes two weeks of quarantine for passengers returning to the UK from the islands as of 4am tomorrow.
After hearing the news, the president of Ashotel, Jorge Marichal, said that the sector "cannot take any more" and asked the State to urgently approve a package of measures to rescue the hotel industry of the Canary Islands, saying "I am very afraid that the winter season is down the drain.”
According to Marichal, "now more than ever it makes sense to start talking about a real rescue package for the hostelry sector of the islands, because very few companies will be able to recover from these continuous shocks that this health crisis keeps bringing."
