Benidorm fights to enter UK ‘green list’ | Hotel news, rss1

The city has COVID-19 cases of 29.8, under the Balearic and Canary Islands

Benidorm is struggling to get a “green list” for the UK and thus start welcoming British tourists as soon as possible. The goal is to separate itself from the rest of the country, which has an average of 5 hits the city.

From the tourism sector they are trying to convince British officials that Benidorm is acting as an “island” where tourists enjoy the town, and once they reach the municipality, they do not travel to the rest of the country, according to Alicante Plaza.

The Hosbec Hotel management explained that the epidemiological data of Benidorm had been transmitted to the tour operators, the embassy and the consulate of the United Kingdom in Spain, as well as to the airlines, airports and tourist authorities,

The most recent data transmitted corresponds to May 10, when the GPA for the last 14 days in Benidorm was 29.8 cases per 100,000 population, which is significantly lower than that recorded in Alicante (31.2), Valencia (33, 5), Castellon (60.8), Valencia community ( 35.6), the Balearic Islands (58.4), the Canary Islands (85.8), Spain (189) or the United Kingdom (45).

The goal, then, is to have the Benidorm considered “green” at a traffic light, which would eliminate the currently required 10-day confinement.

At the moment, the UK does not distinguish between regions and Benidorm is on the amber list, forcing tourists to quarantine for ten days upon their return.
