As a partner of the Balearic Islands, we are pleased to support the pilot program to restart travel, which is important for all European tourism. The 400 tourists, who flew to the islands today, will be followed by 20 additional TUIfly flights in the coming days, so that several thousand travelers can travel to the popular destination.
