Spain’s tourism industry continues to feel the impact of the coronavirus crisis.
According to the latest figures from the National Statistics Institute (INE), just 204,926 international visitors arrived in Spain in June, a drop of 97.7% from the same month in 2019.
This makes it the worst semester on record for the Spanish tourism industry, with just 10.78 million visitors, a fall of 71.7% from the same period in 2019.
Tourist spending in the first half of the year has also plummeted 70.6% to just €11.84 billion.
This means that the sector has lost 27.3 million visitors and €28.4 billion in revenue in the first half of the year compared with the same period last year.
And the new outbreaks, coupled with travel advisories issued by several countries, suggest that things will not improve significantly during the second half of the year.
