MADRID, 18 (EUROPE PRESS)
The CEO of Meliá Hotels International, Gabriel Escarrer, has estimated that Spain will be the “destination-refuge par excellence” for the hotel company as a result of the war in Ukraine and that its vacation segment will improve revenues in 2019.
This was stated in the presentation of the hotel company’s prospects for the 2022 season, in which it also pointed out that countries such as Italy, Greece, Turkey and France will be the main holiday destinations this year.
Within Spain, by volume of business between May and October, the hotel company forecasts that the Balearic Islands will register 2% less than the same period in 2019 due to lower occupancy, while the Canary Islands and the coastal areas will reach 3% more than the level prepandemic.
Regarding the segments by hotels, Escarrer has stated that holiday establishments in Spain will improve the figures for 2019, but the urban sector will be 13% lower than the level of three years ago.
