Definitely, The hotels of the Archipelago are, in general, with occupancy close to full, which means they are in “the good part of the cycle,” explains the general director of be Cordial. But yes, without losing sight of the fact that, sooner or later, a bad cycle will come, or at least not so good. «This is about ups and downs, so we are in a good moment, yes, but only for now, because the next crisis will comewhether due to inflation, due to the recession in Germany and the United Kingdom or due to the repercussions of the European kerosene tax», Villalobos elaborates.
For now, This “good part of the cycle” is also reflected in transportation. Binter announced this Monday that he has included 45 extraordinary flights in its programming for the bridgeThat is, between this Tuesday and next Monday, the 11th. The Canary Islands airline will manage a total of 1,399 operations in that period only on its inter-island routes. The connections that Binter reinforces in a special way in the face of the foreseeable increase in demand are those that link La Palma and El Hierro with the two capital islands and the one that links Lanzarote with Tenerife.
Regarding maritime transport, the Armas Trasmediterránea Group also announced that from this Tuesday until Sunday, the 10th, will put a total of 150,000 seats on sale on the occasion of the Constitution Bridge. These 150,000 seats offered are distributed among all inter-island routes and the lines between Algeciras and Ceuta, Melilla-Málaga and Melilla-Almería. In addition, the company promotes routes between Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Morro Jable, Los Cristianos and San Sebastián de La Gomera and Los Cristianos and Santa Cruz de La Palma.
The Constitution Bridge also arrives with prices on the rise.

And this even though rates have already accumulated an increase of more than 35% since 2021, which shows that the desire to travel cushions any possible impact of the price increase on demand.
